Mayow Park Community Orchard
Today, four Friends of Mayow Park attended the Orchard Leaders Training run by London Orchard Project in preparation for a new community orchard planned for Mayow Park in January 2012. We met at Myatts Fields Park in Lambeth. Our training included fruit tree planting and maintenance, community engagement and starting to write an orchard management plan.
London Orchard project will lead the community planting day in January and we hope a good number of people can participate.
We have some great ideas for future events based around the orchard and would like to hear ideas from other people. Park users can be involved in care and maintenance of this Community Orchard by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org .
To give you a flavour of the fruit varieties, the proposal is for five apple varieties on MM106 semi-dwarfing root stocks, three pears (including two perry pears) and two varieties of plum.
We are looking for individuals or community groups to sponsor the fruit trees. If interested please email email@example.com
