Hyde Park Community Orchard video
July 2, 2012 by operationfarm
Take a look at this fantastic video tracking the improvements made to the Hyde Park Community Orchard, overseen by Operation Farm.
And there’s this:
Wednesday 11th July 1.30-3pm Launch of Hyde Park Community Orchard
The event has been organised so that local schools and other volunteers who have been involved in planting or making the artworks can come and celebrate completion of the new features. There will be refreshments and cakes, kids’ activities and tours of the orchard. The Mayor will be present to declare the orchard open so we are hoping for some real summer weather!
Please RSVP if you’d like to attend here http://hyde-park-community-orchard.eventbrite.com/

Disclamier: MCFly knows a few of the people involved in this socially. If it had been bobbins rather than fantastic, we might have kept schtum rather than go for the jugular.
