Thursday Pop-In

The weekly Thursday Pop-In is a chance to get involved with day-to-day activities around the estate as well as being a day when you are able to enjoy the estate in other ways as well, such as the Buggy Walk.

2018 (Date TBC):  Year 4 Annual formative Pruning in the Orchard


Joyce pruning in the orchard

We will be gathering for our annual pruning workshop.  2018 will require light pruning to encourage the trees to develop open centres, checking the graft unions and dealing with any damage or disease that needs to be cut out.  By allowing air and sunlight in, we hope to aid healthy trees and good quality fruit – important, as we are growing without the aid of chemicals.  Booking essential.  Please send a request to find out more and to reserve a place.

If you are interested in volunteering and learning about maintaining fruit trees, please contact us so that we can let you know future dates for this and any other interim activities.

Ongoing Activities: please get in touch if you are interested in being involved in our project.  Some activities can be tailored as part of our annual and day-to-day activities, for example orchard tasks, woodland management, pond management and creating the new wildlife friendly and productive garden.
