A team of volunteers dug in this afternoon preparing a new soft fruit bed.
A section of turf along the south-facing was lifted and a bed dug over. We’ll then be manuring it and leaving it to rot down over the summer. In the autumn we’ll then plant a selection of soft fruits including raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries and more!
On Saturday 19th March at 1pm, we’re hosting a volunteers meeting in the 2nd Knutsford Scout hut on Manor Crescent. We’d like to have an informal chat with those who want to support the orchard with the aim of discussing our plans for the year ahead.
