Events in local sustainability this September
Farm days 

Things are still growing and need tending, and there is lots of grass to cut and compost.  

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 cut and rake, and compost to be made, at the farm and in the orchard.  Come with shears or a scythe if you have them.  And it will soon be time to start picking apples.  

The site is large and it is easy to socially distance.  Email us if you'd like to come along.

We will meet on Saturday 4th September at 11am.  
The orchard needs a bit of a tidy - bring shears or scythes. And there are apples ready to pick.
Dorchester Repair Cafe is BACK open for business! 
On Sunday, 26 September 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.
Heritage Open Day at the Community Farm

This year's theme is Edible England, celebrating local food production, and the farm will be taking part. 

On Wednesday morning 15th September there will be tours of the farm and neighbouring orchard - come and see our polytunnel, vegetables, fruit trees, poultry and bees.

On Saturday 18th September there will be another opportunity to see the farm and orchard, and there will also be apple pressing in the orchard.  Bring a small bottle to take away some freshly pressed apple juice!
Hard work in the orchard last month, clearing bulrushes from the pond and scything and composting grass.
