We have decided on a permanent change to our regular Spring Planting Weekend, moving it to the first weekend in October 6th-7th.
This coincides with a shift in focus for management of the site. We will continue our erosion control works, put a bit more effort into rabbit control, and add systematic weed control to our work. The hope is that scheduling outside winter sport season, and in mid-spring weather, will make it easier for more people to come, and for us all to stay a little longer. We will still be planting trees at our autumn working bees.
We will also be organising occasional ad hoc working bees throughout the year. The first of these so far scheduled is Sunday 26th August. This will be a chance to plant some more seedlings at the top of the hill, using the last of our pre-ordered stock for 2018. We’ll send a reminder closer to the time.
