ORCHARD WORK 24 November 2013

Five of us, including the park keeper, weeded, pruned and mulched round 5 of the orchard trees.The two-hour session seemed to fly past and was very enjoyable. Thank you to Sue, Ann, Alona, Ian and Tunde.

Collecting wood chips for mulching
There are 6 more trees to prepare for the winter so we are likely to have another session in two or three weeks time.

orchard work morning Sunday 24th Nov 2013

Friends of Mayow Park will have a work session at the community orchard on Sunday 24th November 2013 from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
The orchard is near the tennis courts.
Our tasks will include:
weeding and light pruning
No experience is necessary, learn new skills,  as we can show you what to do.
Bring a trowel and gardening gloves if you have them although we have some basic tools.
If we have time, there are additional tasks in the herb and fruit beds near the drinking water fountain.
Children can come along with a supervising adult.
By agreement with Glendale, we will have access to the portaloo toilet as well as facilities for making hot drinks. Light refreshments will be available!
See you there.
