Orchard volunteering session Sunday, 27th January 2-4pm

Our next community orchard maintenance session will take place from 2 - 4pm on Sunday 27th January.   We'll be doing a bit of winter orchard work, largely pruning but also checking guards and posts. Please come along to help and maybe learn something new about caring for trees. Rendezvous at the south end of Ladywell Fields, Bournville Road entrance. Boots and old clothes recommended. Under 16s only with close supervision. Please bring your own (sharp) secateurs if you have them, but some will also be available to borrow. Please email ladywellfields@yahoo.co.uk if interested, so we can gauge numbers. It is best to prune in dry weather, so if it is a wet day we are likely to postpone.

For those interested, there is a work day planned at the nearby Iona orchard on the same afternoon.  We shall also be able to visit this site which is not open to the general public.
