The Place Where Plums Grow


The first stages of our project, The Place Where Plums Grow, which aims to bring a selection of fruiting trees back to the Woolwich Common and Plumstead Common areas of south London is featured in this weeks edition of Royal Greenwich Time

In the coming months we are looking for more community groups, businesses or schools that may be interested in being involved when we roll the project out in the autumn. We are shortly going to be inviting local business to sponsor a tree and get involved with their local community by supporting the planting of trees and the development of a rich community education programme that will look at the history and folklore of orchards. We will also be developing an education strand looking at the role of trees in supporting bio-diversity, caring for your orchard and collecting delicious recipes to enjoy the fruits of the community's work
