About the Food Flagship Programme
The Open Orchard Tree Planting Project is one of the projects initiated by the Lambeth Food Flagship Programme as part of the Gipsy Hill Project.
The aim of the Gipsy Hill project is to promote a residents’ led approach to tackling all food related issues. It will help residents to be aware of and develop skills to address local food issues, support the Gipsy Hill community in taking leadership on these issues and to use food to connect residents to local organisations and other borough services.
