My guest and tour guide today in Divya Hariramani Herrero. She is a sustainability consultant and Associate Director at Longevity Partners, a London National Park City Ranger and runs an instagram page called Fruity Walks, where she is chronicling the amazing and surprising fruit tree of London and beyond. She is fascinated by all aspects of sustainability from low energy engineering to growing fruit trees in her South London neighbourhood.
I joined her for a walk around Bermondsey where she told me the stories behind two urban orchards and how the community has come together to grow fruit on forgotten spaces.
CORRECTION: Around minute 27:00 Divya says that the lemon tree came from Malta. We later found out that it actually came from Cyprus.
