Community Orchard planting 28th January 2012

Calling for orchard planting volunteers: Come along and help plant 10 fruit trees in Mayow Park on Saturday 28th January 2012 with the London Orchard Project. The orchard will be  on the southern side of the park, very near the tennis courts. Time 12 - 3pm. London Orchard Project will bring the trees, stakes, tree guards and tools. Their staff will guide volunteers on how to plant and look after the trees. Please contact Friends of Mayow Park if you would like to help with planting or have questions. Email:

Orchard carers: Would you like to be involved with the care of the orchard? The trees will need to be watered regularly, weeds removed  from around the trunk and occasional mulching. In time they will need some pruning. Training will be given on care of the orchard. For more information about becoming an orchard carer email:

Sponsor an orchard tree: Not everyone wants to dig or be involved in the care of the orchard. If you  prefer to sponsor a tree either as an individual, a group or an organisation, please get in touch on
