London Orchard Project at Cottington Community Garden

London Orchard Project at Cottington Community Garden

Cheery householders gathered at this Kennington garden to realise their dream of productive fruit trees.

It was a dreary January Sunday morning but the work went quick and was supported by fruity treats such as apricot cake and hot apple and ginger tea.  The London Orchard Project provide trees and expertise to community projects and schools.  They can’t take on any more for this planting season, but get in touch for later in 2011!

Master Gardeners Stephanie, Carole and Fiona support the growing at Cottington.

    What a fabulous story! Tree planting is one of my favourite jobs – especially community planting, and especially when children are involved

    Like the orange wheelbarrow too!

    Thanks for posting
