2] Mulching the paths in the Triangle to ensure they remain weed-free
3] Removing weeds in the Triangle so the other plants can flourish
4] Watering the orchard and fruiting hedgerow.
If you have suitable tools, please bring them. We would also welcome donated plastic 4litre/ 6 litre milk bottles (washed & with lids) for watering.Children are welcome to join in if accompanied by an adult.

It was fun watering the community orchard this afternoon. There were four of us, lots of water containers and three wheelbarrows. This meant that we could fill up with water and give all the fruit trees and fruiting hedgerow their necessary water allocation within an hour. A great team spirit. Thank you to all the volunteers today. Next time should we have a group photo for the blog?
