Brixton Orchard, which has transformed a neglected patch of grass on the corner of one of London’s busiest (and most polluted) junctions, is a partnership with Urban Growth and Open Orchard Project and was commissioned by the Brixton Business Improvement District (BID), with funding from the Mayor of London’s Air Quality Fund. A green space south of St. Matthew’s Church on Brixton Hill A23, at the end of Rush Common, over 30 fruit trees have been planted here by local volunteers, with hundreds of edible hedgerow plants coming soon, and anyone can come along and get involved in helping with the project, giving them a chance to learn new skills and knowledge in planting fruit trees, flowering bulbs, plants. Regular orchardeer training sessions will soon be available too.
