Events so far in 2019

The year started with Wassailing in January to encourage the trees to be fruitful.

We have already run:
- a Pruning Course in the Orchard;
- a Grafting Course for adults;
- a Planting session with Year 5 and a Grafting session with Year 4 West Jesmond Primary School pupils.

And we continue to hold regular Gardening Days in the Orchard where we look after the trees and keep the Orchard tidy.
