Planting apple trees – planning for the future

Thanks to everyone who came to our worktask this morning in the forest garden. And welcome too to two new volunteers Becca and Leslie.

With spring just around the corner, it was time to plant the apple trees we had, as reported after the last worktask. We also tidied up more of the beds, started some log piles for the insects,  as well as replanting some of the square bench planters across the bridge. We then finished early and made our way to the visitor centre for our AGM.

There was lots of discussion and plans for the future, but the main news is that Hillary and Peter announced that they would be stepping down as directors at some point later this year as they are moving from the area. They will be a hard act to follow and I thank them for all their hard work and support over the last few years,. However we welcomed Julie and Hedy into treasurer and director roles respectively, joining Judith and Margy, who will continue in director roles. The future of the Friends still looks bright!
