Booking is essential for these workshops.  To help cover LOP’s fee there is a small charge for the workshops of £15.00 for each session, £40 for all three; concessions it is £5 for one session, £12 for three.  The charge is payable in advance.

For further information and to book, please contact Sydenham Gardens 

Restoring the Orchard

De Frene has many fruit trees including pear, plum and apple.  But they do need a lot of TLC to maximise the yield.  Some of the crop will be sold and some will be made into jams, juices and chutneys for the benefit of the allotment and Sydenham Garden.
