Landor Road Open Orchard & Kitchen Garden Planting

On Wednesday 19th of October we planted a kitchen garden on Fenwick Estate in Clapham. The event started at 4 pm and by 6.30 a group of around 20 had planted 90 herb plants, including lavender, rosemary, tarragon, thyme, yarrow and more.

The event and the plants were funded by This Is Clapham Business Improvement District.

A second event is to follow in January, planting 11 heritage fruit trees in the same planter.

This event was a collaborative effort between the Open Orchard Project and Social Landscapes.
