Winter Events 2020

Willow Cutting – Thursday 6th February, from 10:00 a.m. until lunchtime
We will be pollarding our willow and invite you to take part.  Cutting back the willow keeps a fresh supply of colourful young flexible willow coming, for crafts and growing projects.  Volunteers are welcome to take some willow home with them.  If you would like a winter display of colour for a large vase, some material to start off a living willow sculpture, dome or fedge* or you would like to plant some willow trees in your garden, this could be for you!
The event is free, but with limited places.  Please contact us if you would like to take part.  You will then be given further information, such as what to bring and how to find us.

* a fedge is a living willow fence or is it a hedge?!


Orchard Tree Pruning – 
Thursday 13th February, from 10:00 a.m. until lunchtime
We will be running a pruning workshop for both those new to pruning or old hands.  After an unusual start to 2019 with the re-planting of the trees, due to compacted soil, we will now take a look at how the trees have re-established and deal with maintenance pruning and adjustments.  You will also have the opportunity to discuss any pruning and fruit tree topics which you might like to raise during the session.
