Brixton Orchard Volunteer Session
The Brixton Orchard is a community project which aims to encourage more people to interact with and learn about the natural world on their doorstep – even in the unlikeliest of places, at one of London’s busiest junctions!
Maintaining this green oasis involves a range of tasks, suitable for a wide range of participants, offering the chance to learn new skills and knowledge in:
– Caring for fruit trees in a range of sizes including mulching and watering them (learn how to get fruit trees off to the best start)
– Caring for young edible hedgerow plants (learn about native British plants that provide food for humans and animals alike)
All welcome! Join us on Thursday afternoons (1:00pm- 2:30pm) every other week from Oct 2019 – April 2020
For groups over 5 people, please schedule your arrival and discuss your group’s priorities and abilities with us in advance.
Please wear clothing appropriate for the weather and if it’s hot consider wearing a hat and sunglasses and bringing suncream and a drink (although there is a cafe just across the road.)
We will supply all tools required, including gloves, but if you have your own please do bring them along.
If rain is consistent and heavy we will call off that particular session and notify signups by email.
We start our morning at Pop Farm in Pop Brixton for our urban gardening/farming session at 10am. Feel free to join us by getting tickets here
