The Meadow Orchard Project is a community permaculture garden, orchard, wildlife meadow and eco-building project located in Crouch End, North London. The project was established to inspire and cultivate a creative, healthy and sustainable local community, drawing upon permaculture ethics and principles.
Our work activities include:
– food growing in our garden and polytunnel
– forest gardening and tree-care in our orchard
– wildlife habitat management of our rare meadow grassland, woodland areas, pond and bramble scrub
– eco-building to finish constructing our round-house, wood-store and oven-shelter pergola
– care and upkeep of the site, built structures and resources
We welcome volunteers and are open every Saturday for general workdays, except for final weekend of the month when we are open on Sundays. We have a range of activities and community events going on to learn new skills, meet others and enjoy being in nature. You can sign up as a friend of the meadow on our interactive social network site to receive regular updates of events and workdays and you can post up blogs, comments, photos and film clips too.
We hope to see you at the Meadow Orchard soon.
