WOT2Grow - Community Orchard

A quiet month at the orchard as we move into winter, at last!

The planting of the “fedge” was very successful despite it being a horrible day. It rained just enough to make life difficult for wearers of glasses but that didn't deter us. We got stuck in to removing the turf, digging out the soil and then planting the willow branches and tying them in. It is quite artistic making the shape and tying the bits together! We completed all of the first row of fedges so a good start.

Our second work session was held on a glorious frosty morning in early December. The temperature was -2C at the start but soon warmed up as the sun came out and as we warmed up we completed many tasks! The main ones were to remove some dead raspberry canes, cut back the sensory garden, and to cut back the wild flower strips.  There are always things to do so if you want to help do join us or just come along as we can always use extra hands.

Don't forget the Wassail on Saturday January 17th starting at 4:30pm at the orchard. Do come along and join us – bring torches and something to bang to make a noise, food available at 4:30 followed by our very own Wassail!

Our AGM will be held on Tuesday January 27th at 8:00pm in Tysoe Village Hall committee room so come along if you want to know what we are doing and to find out more about the orchard.

For information about the orchard or the Wassail contact one of the team.
