PIP ! Planting in the Pleasaunce
We are a friendly group of volunteers in the East Greenwich Pleasaunce who… Celebrate and promote a local orchard and nature in and around our local park. Love that food and growing are such powerful ways to build community, friendships and a sense of place. Run volunteer days and share skills and knowledge, learning from each other. Seek to increase biodiversity in the Pleasaunce . Work with nature, avoiding the use of chemicals as much as possible Welcome new volunteers, whether they can simply help out occasionally or get involved regularly Welcome children and young people who want to join in So far we have… Planted a community orchard of apples, pears and plums and continue to care for it regularly Staged at least 6 annual community wassailing festival to celebrate our orchard and bring people together .Sown wildflower seeds Used forest gardening methods to increase biodiversity and support the health of the orchard Supported our neighbourhood’s mysterious guerrilla gardeners
