Can you help water a newly-planted community orchard at Berrylands Nature Reserve?

The group which helps maintain and nurture the five hectare reserve off Raeburn Avenue, Surbiton, is asking individuals to help look after fruit trees planted in January and other saplings planted in the last couple of years while they are out on their daily walk to get some fresh air and exercise.

“Usually we would’ve done tree watering as a group activity as part of our volunteer sessions, but unfortunately, with our sessions on hold during the current virus outbreak, we can’t do that at the moment,” said Friends of Berrylands Nature Reserve treasurer Andrew Irving.

“But we’re hoping some people might be able to help by taking a bucket, jug, watering can, or bottle of water with them on their daily local walk to make sure the trees can get all the water they need to continue to grow.

“Anything you can do is hugely appreciated, and although we can’t do it together as a group, families are of course welcome to water together. A perfect time to get the kids involved!”
