Kingston Permaculture Reserve is a forest garden and community orchard planted out in 1992 with mature top fruit trees, soft fruit, nuts, perennial vegetables, mushroom logs, wildlife and ponds. The project aims to demonstrate practical solutions that people can apply in their gardens or allotments to grow food sustainably. We meet to maintain and develop the site and pick produce some weekday afternoons and evenings, generally on Sundays (especially the last of the month.)
