We are planting out Alder and willow for a windbreak hedge this Saturday 1st March, after the Full Members Meeting at 11.00.
Start at 12.00 – we expect to lay out the mypex along our prepared strip, cutting holes and with a spade plant out our bare rooted alder.
If we have time and enough people, we are also planning on planting cuttings from our willow and from Margaret’s willow.
Full members and Friends are invited to help with the task.
Despite HEAVY downpours on the 18th Jan, plenty turned out for the Orchard day up on the field. We decided to postpone the Wassail as there was no possibility of fire lighting but some of us managed to make a start on tree guard maintenance.
The Wassail is rescheduled for 8th February (TBC – check out posts on this site) .
We hope to continue with orchard maintenance, and some willow pruning on the willow beds.
For those how are not members who would like to join us on the Wassail day please contact us to find out more details.

This Saturday from 1pm on the field we will be lighting the fire and bringing food and the odd drum to celebrate the season’s shift.
