About The Event
Join us for a fun-filled morning in Brixton Orchard as we help Urban Growth with lots of important and fun tasks to help maintain this beautiful garden. We will be getting stuck in by sowing flowers in the orchard, including marigolds and poppies, making the first fertiliser 'tea' of the year using comfrey and nettles from the orchard, and helping spread wood chips around the orchard trees. Kids will have the opportunity to sow seeds to take home too!
Urban Growth is a Lambeth based organisation, empowering communities to create and care for natural urban spaces. They educate, inspire and collaborate with community groups, businesses and government to make London a greener, healthier home for everyone, creating a city where everyone feels connected to nature.
