Our annual sort out, general maintenance tasks, tool repairs and inventory.
Our traditional Christmas task, tree planting in the countryside. Site to be confirmed. Please note we will be leaving Culture Fusion earlier than normal at 9.30am promptly, please come earlier and leave enough time to get boots and waterproofs and to load any tools. Please let us know if you are coming.
We will be tree planting in the countryside, at Airton with Ian of "YorGreen". Our first tree planting of the season!
Please make sure you arrive in good time today to sort out boots and waterproofs, we will be leaving promptly at 10 o'clock as we have a long journey.
We will be making a start on the winter pruning of the apple trees. There will also be other more energetic jobs to keep us warm.
Our annual trip to Rodley Nature Reserve to help them with the coppicing of the willow trees to keep clear access for birds to the water.
We will make a start on pruning the soft fruit, raking up fallen leaves to keep disease in check and digging out weeds are some of the other jobs to do.
Continuing the management of the pond, as part of a project of renewal of the ponds and site, through this coming year, that is funded by the Postcode Local Trust. Today we removed the piles of pond vegetation that we had left at the edge last time, to give any pond life chance to get back to the pond. We raked fallen autumn leaves from around the pond edges to prevent them blowing in and from the surface of the water to try to prevent a build up of rotting organic matter in the pond.
Our second visit this autumn, we will be cutting the grass on the banking on the field, clearing deadwood by using it in dead-hedging, and possibly some coppicing and re planting, spreading out wildflowers to new areas.
A day to clear out and tidy the undercroft where we keep equipment and materials.
