Working Bee

We have our next working bee coming up at the orchard, next Saturday, March 22, from 2pm. This time we would like you to bring your ideas on what trees we should purchase with the recent grant... time to make orchard dreams come true!

At the moment we are trialling a monthly catch-up / working bee, and we hope the fourth Saturday of the month (afternoons) would suit most people. It's also Churchill Market days, so it'd be easy to remember. We will see how it goes for a couple of months, and there may be extra working bees during planting season.

You don't need to RSVP, just turn up anytime between 2 and 4pm, and if you can't make it, no worries, we hope to see you another time :)
