Ladywell Fields Orchard Volunteer Session, Saturday 24 August 2019, 10.30am-12.30pm

The fruit trees in the orchard would benefit from a late summer prune, which will stimulate the trees to produce fruit next year. We have therefore planned another work day for Saturday 24th August. Please come along to help and maybe learn something new about tree maintenance. Rendezvous at the orchard in the south end of Ladywell Fields, near the Bournville Road entrance. Even if it is warm, covered shoes are a good idea as there are thistles around the trees. Under 16s only with close supervision. Please bring your own (sharp) secateurs if you have them, but some tools will also be available to borrow.

Please email if interested, so we can gauge numbers. Hope to see you there.

These pictures show fruit in Ladywell Fields Orchard growing nicely--July 2019--to be enjoyed soon.  If you'd like to give something back to ensure a rich harvest this and future years, and perhaps learn a lot about tree maintenance, why not come along to a Ladywell Fields Orchard Volunteer Session?  The next one will be held on Saturday 24th August,10.30 am -12.30 pm.
