New Orchard for New Beckton Park
You’d never guess it during the rush hour, but there are more trees in London than people. And our urban forest is about to grow a little bigger. Newham Council are working with Trees for Cities to plant 20 fruit and nut trees in New Beckton Park. When they’re fully grown, passers-by will be able to pick delicious damsons, apples, plums, pears, and more from this free orchard. Sign up to get your hands dirty at the community planting event. A hot lunch is provided, and so are trees, gloves, and tools.
