About The Event
The award-winning Mitcham Orchard was as project initiated by Sustainable Merton and inspired 200 residents and 12 partners to transform a local derelict area of spare land into an award-winning community orchard with 30 different varieties of fruit trees, 7 raised beds, ponds, a soft fruit collection, a wild garden.
The site’s development continues and it has been used now for numerous barbecues and parties by local residents and groups, and is fortunate to have local company ‘Grass Barbers’ carrying out regular maintenance. The orchard is a leisure facility to be enjoyed by everyone, and also provides an educational resource through informative signage.
If you would like to become involved in the project and support this wonderful community gardening hub, where you will learn more about planting and harvesting produce, please do come along!
