12th October will be an important work day preparing the ground for some fruit tree planting as well as some more mundane tasks. There will be two sessions: 10.30am-12.30pm and 1pm-3pm. We intend to tackle: preparation of the ground for fruit tree planting; clearing nettles; grass and weed clearing from the paths; privet hedge pruning and tidying; tidying the railway path; completing planting of wild plants from Chelsea Flower Show. Please bring your own gloves and tools if you don’t mind, for as yet we only have a limited supply. Gloves, secateurs, forks (large and small) and spade will come in handy, plus the inevitable sturdy, stout or scruffy footwear!
