We are starting to clear up after our season of production. We meet at the Community Farm or the Community Orchard in Poundbury on Sunday afternoons at around 2pm
and also on
Wednesday mornings at 10.30
There is lots of grass to compost, our 'wildlife corridor' to cut back, paths between beds to clear up, apples to be picked for our next apple pressing day. We need to build some items from our collection of pallets - planters for lavender, benches, perhaps even a pergola!
The site is large and it is easy to socially distance. Email us if you'd like to come along.
The orchard still needs tidying - bring shears or scythes, or secateurs to cut brambles. And there are apples to collect.
Dorchester Repair Cafe is BACK open for business!
On Sunday, 31 October 10-12
At Sunninghill Community Hall, off Culliford Rd North, Dorchester DT1 1EB (behind Sunninghill School)
A monthly community event offering tools, materials and specialist help to fix broken household items and therefore save them from landfill.
Bring your broken items to be fixed by our volunteers on the last Sunday of every month.
Anyone is welcome to bring an item along, come for a chat, have a coffee or just watch the repairers at work.
