Members Meeting - Community Gardens, Community Orchards .. & Bees. Monday 25th Sept at 19:30 Community Church, Werter Road, SW15 2LL

Event Date: Sep 25, 2017

The Putney Society and The Dover House Estate Residents Association are working together to plant, next November, a community orchard on one of the greens on the Dover House Road, Putney.  So, to help us all to know more about community gardens, community orchards and bees, this meeting has an array of speakers who are practioners in the field.

MARTIN COBLEY, of the Wendelsworth Residents' Association, will describe their community garden created in 2011 and the community orchard planted in 2016 on the Wendelsworth Estate, in the heart of Wandsworth - just of Garrett Lane.   He will also give practical advice on successful composting. 

ROWAN SALIM leads the Putney Community Gardeners Group who have been creating community gardens, with great enthusiasm, on the Ashburton Estate, Putney with help from the Roehampton Garden Society. 

EMMA PRITCHARD, from the charity, The Bee Friendly Trust, will tell us about the importance of bees to everyone and about the Trust's efforts to create gardens to help the bee community.  You may have noticed their raised planter beds at both East Putney & Putney stations.

All are welcome to come along on the 25th September to find out more about the growing importance on wildlife friendly gardening.

Free to Society Members, £3 donation for non-members.
