We will be preparing the raised beds inside the polytunnel. We need to sort out a rainwater harvesting system - gutters, water containers, pipes. We will continue to plant out and weed the outside raised beds, make lots of compost, and mulch the trees planted in April. And so much scything! Something for everyone! All welcome!
The Railway Orchard licence should be with us within days.... So we may be there one day this month. Check our facebook page if you are planning to come for a workday.
Repair Cafe opening in Dorchester soon - watch this space!
Come and join us for an afternoon scything in the Poundbury orchard on Saturday 22 June, from around 1pm.
We have a couple of spare scythes if you want a go. Bring a summer solstice snack to share!
The polytunnel is finally up!
