The Orchard Project is bringing orchards into the heart of urban communities. ....
Maybe we could create an orchard in boxes like our allotment
My thinking too.....but we probably need the backing of the Residents' Association and the Corporation. Who is on the committees that can pass a motion. I can then chase The Orchard Project (Cause) Ltd. to find out what practical support they might offer.
However our landscapes are Listed and no-one seems to know where exoisting underground services are waiting to be crushed or concrete structure about to collapse (if overloaded).
Talk to Sue Pearson our councillor
The Orchard Project (Cause) Ltd have come back to me with:
"Hi again Iain, if you'd like support with planting an orchard in this area, we may be able to help! We have planted on council estates before with an engaged group of residents then caring for the trees. If it's in London, could you email your needs / idea to firstname.lastname@example.org"
..and I have chased them up but no reply as yet.
Lack of water is a major issue.we needs taps in more locations. Needs funds and lobbying the City
