Why join a gym when you can spend Saturday climbing trees? West Ealing locals get their wellies on…
We have our first volunteering event of 2012 and wow what a lot of volunteers! A great start to the year; I hope this continues. We have taken on this small rather run down Orchard that needs a good tidy up before we start pruning. A team of us will be there this Saturday 14th January to do this job, ably helped by The London Orchard Project who will be providing expert help and advice on the day. One of the Ealing Park Rangers will also be there to help out and support us too. We will then be holding a pruning workshop there on the 4th February to learn basic pruning techniques and then prune the 8 trees.
I’ll post some pictures up of the day so you can have a look at the Orchard and the lovely team of volunteers too!
Putting together tree packs
The London Orchard Project are looking for a couple of people to help put together tree packs following their Apple Day tree planting workshops. They will be assembling the packs at the beautiful Camley Street Natural Park near Kings Cross, and you can grill Lewis and David on any fruit-tree related questions while you work. The resulting packs will be collected for planting by over 50 people who attended the workshops back in October, resulting in a greener, more fruitful London.
Where: Camley Street Natural Park, 12 Camley St, London N1C 4PW
When: Wed 11th Jan, 10.30am-4pm
