Orchard and Grape Vine Pruning Workshop Event at Mountsfield Park Community Garden with James Hazlerigg-Kinlay 1 – 2.45pm, 18th February 2018

Orchard and Grape Vine Pruning Workshop Event at Mountsfield Park Community Garden with James Hazlerigg-Kinlay, 1 – 2.45pm, 18th February 2018  Book here for Eventbrite tickets –

During this gardening skills training workshop local Forest School leader, garden designer and horticulturist James Hazlerigg-Kinlay will demonstrate pruning roses, fruit trees and grape vines. The pruning will be very much a hands-on demonstration outside on a number of roses, young fruit trees and vines in the community garden. Bring your secateurs (sharpened if possible) and you will tackle some pruning so that you can take home some new skills. Tea, coffee and homemade cake will be provided.

All profits will be used to pay for new fruit trees and replacement plants in the community garden.

  • Park Explorer Trail with Izzy
  • Jenni’s Truly Splendid Popup Tea Room

  • Unfortunately we will not have the Park Fever bar this year at Teddy Bears’ Picnic because of a mix-up with the event’s alcohol licence. You are welcome to bring your own craft beer with you!

We’re looking forward to meeting you and your furry friend!

Please support our Spacehive campaign for fox proof litter bins at Mountsfield Park

Please support our Spacehive funding campaign for fox proof litter bins at Mountsfield Park. We want to make Mountsfield Park more welcoming and beautiful. Unfortunately foxes empty our old open style bins at night making Mountsfield Park untidy and unwelcoming. The Mountsfield Park urban foxes are naturally curious creatures, they investigate the bins looking for junk food and used nappies to use in their dens; unfortunately they don’t clear up after themselves. This means that in a public place, that only has the services of a park-keeper two days per week, litter, old food and bags of dog poo can be left strewn across the grass. This is not only unsightly but also a health hazard, especially to small children and also pet dogs.

Vote for new Hither Green street trees

Hither Green is prioritised for an allocation of trees funded by Greater London Authority.

In Hither Green, there are over 200 empty tree pits and so to make things easy we have marked the tree pits here for you to vote for where you would like the Street trees to be planted.

You will need to search for your street, find the closest pin, click on it and leave your email address and we will send you a confirmation.

The tree pits with the most registered votes will be chosen for planting.

There will be less than 3 trees to allocate however, as always you can privately sponsor a tree by pledging £240 and be proud that you have helped keep Hither Green green.
