Come and plant a Livinggreen orchard!

The stable yard is now finished and visitors are enjoying seeing it in the sunshine today.

Meanwhile work never stops on the project and we're currently planning an event to plant some fruit trees around the edge of the stable yard. It's on Sunday 27th November, 11am-1pm, and we'll be planting ten apple, pear and cherry trees, all of local Merton varieties. The trees have all been funded by Copella, the fruit juice company, as part of their Plant & Protect campaign to increase the number of British fruit trees.

If you haven't yet visited the new stable yard with its Livinggreen Exhibition, cafe and craft stalls, come along on Sunday 27th and help plant a fruit tree at the same time!
