Dates for your Diary

We're having a Gardening Day at the Orchard on Sunday (4th November) from 10.30am till lunchtime. An Autumn tidy-up - raking up leaves, repairing the area that was dug up for the burst pipe, clearing old perennials, etc. Please come and join us. We always have fun. Bring tools if you can but we have spares. See you there.

Next year's Wassailing event will be held on 7th January 2019 at 2pm.

Next year's Pruning Course will be held on 9th February and one Grafting Course on 2nd March.

Events so far in 2018

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

At the beginning of the year, we ran:
- a Pruning Course in the Orchard;
- two Grafting Courses for adults;
- Grafting, Planting and Juicing sessions with West Jesmond Primary School pupils;
- our Annual Festival Open Day where we had lots of fun.

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


Please have a read of our most recent newsletters which tell you about current developments at the Orchard.
