New Orchard for the Park

We are thrilled to announce that Friends of Grangewood Park have been successful in securing a grant of £500 from the Capital Growth scheme to plant a small orchard in the park.

Capital Growth is a campaign to support 2,012 new community food growing spaces for London by the end of 2012.

We are planning, with the backing of Croydon Council, to plant twelve trees in all, four apple, four pear and four plum, to create a mini orchard which will be a haven for wildlife and a great resource for the local community and local schools.

As well as hosting the tree planting day, we also plan to hold annual 'harvest' days for everyone.

We have a provisional date for tree planting on Saturday February 12th 2011. This date will be added to the calendar when confirmed.
