Thursday 21st March 2019 10:30am until 3pm
Cranford Country Park Orchard, The Parkway, Cranford, London
Cranford Park Friends, London Borough of Hillingdon and The Orchard Project are working together to restore the orchard at Cranford Park. There has been an orchard on the site for at least 150 years, and although the current orchard is only 15 years old, it is of real value with 47 different varieties of apple and pear growing together.
We’re installing a brand new interpretation board and adding ID labels to each of the trees so everyone will know what varieties are there, their uses and when to pick them. We’ll also be mulching the trees with woodchip from our pruning offcuts.
All are welcome, all tools and training provided so no experience necessary.
The event will take place from 10:30am until 2pm, the orchard is a short walk from the car park and visitors centre. See this map.
