Saturday 12-March-2016, 10:00 – 13:00

Join us for a casual Tree Tending Walk along the Grand Union Canal, visiting over 100 fruit trees! (Anyone is welcome to count!)
We will visit most sites, add or replace some labels, pick some litter, and apply some general TL&C. Meet on the towpath by the Fox Inn.

Saturday 19-March-2016, 10:00 – 12:00

It’s Family Day! We invite all children to bring their parents to join us in St Margaret’s Open Space by the Grand Union Canal in Hanwell for planting of an edible hedge along the perimeter of the newly planted St. Margarete’s public orchard. Grown-ups not in possession of children or no longer in control of children are also welcome: Everybody’s invited!

Saturday 16-April-2016, 10:00 – 14:00

Come help with Mulching Day 2016! We’ll bring out woodchip to keep those pesky nettles and other weed at bay, and apply our usual dose of general TL&C to fruit trees and their environment. All details to be confirmed.

Saturday 7-May-2016, 12:00 onwards

It’s time for the Spring Blossom Picnic! Join us for a bit of frolicking over a friendly chat, games and fun for the children, a drink and a bit! The now almost legendary Hanwell and Norwood Green Orchard Trail picnics are not to be missed, and we always had fine weather! (So far.) Join the fun, bring as much as you would want to eat or drink to the sharing table, bring a game, a kite, a pet, a dog, a granny!
We’ll be by the sheep in Jubilee Meadow.
