Since 2014 we have planted 140 fruit trees in 16 mini-orchards
Throughout the summer and autumn we’ll be running lots of fruity events and educational activities and we’d love you to join us.
We’re mapping all the public fruit trees in Gipsy Hill ward, so we know where all the yummy public fruit is. We'll be popping up at local markets so come and say hi. Do you have a fruit tree you don't pick from, or know one which goes to waste? We can add those to our map too (don’t worry, we won’t publish your contact details).
Come and get involved in making loads of different products with the fruit to extend its shelf life. Think juice, pickle, chutney, drying and jam; think recipes your grandmother used and inspiration from other food cultures. We’re going to create a collection of recipes with your help.
We’re bringing the community together to pick as much public fruit as we can - come and give us a hand! We believe that everything that can be eaten by people, should be eaten by people. It's no secret that home-grown produce tastes better than shop-bought. We’ll be donating some to the local FoodBank to be eaten by local people who can’t afford to eat fresh fruit.
We’ll plant more fruit trees in and around Gipsy Hill. We’re on the look out for four places, each with the capacity for 10 trees. And we need lots of hands to help us plant them in the autumn.
Help us to plant more public fruit trees in 2016. Go to our store and gift us a fruit tree- then come and be part of the planting
