Today we had our first visit of the year to the Orchard. After an initial introduction to the site for people who had not visited before we started a number of managment tasks. New Raspberry canes were planted, which included a thorough weeding of the beds. The remaining section of the central footpath was completed. A bench was replaced. Growing beds were prepared with the long term plan of growing crops to be used for Apple Day. And the compost bins were turned which yielded a useful supply of compost and was incorporated in the growing beds.
