The Urban Orchard Project is creating lush cities across the United Kingdom swathed in fruit and nut trees. We work in partnership with communities to plant, manage, restore and harvest orchards in urban areas to help us all to rediscover the pleasure of eating home-grown fruit.
We've welcomed five new members to The Urban Orchard Project team who are excited to to deliver our inspirational orchard restoration, education and events programme celebrating London’s orchard heritage.
Most apples, pears and plums are, in the main, not self-fertile. This means that in order to produce fruit, these trees need to be planted close to one or more suitable varieties in flower at the same time.
