Some volunteers involved with the Community Orchard in Mayow Park attended an orchard training course run by the London Orchard Project  (LOP) at Dacres wood Reserve Field Centre on Saturday 14th July 2012. The course leader was Lewis from LOP and there were 16 attendees from five projects. We learned about soil ecology and  to look  for signs of pests and diseases in fruit trees. Part of the course led participants to our very own Mayow Park Community Orchard to look at how the trees are coping with the excessive rainfall - some managing better than others.
We do not expect to harvest any fruit this year but would welcome suggestions on how we can celebrate the orchard this autumn.
