January saw us back to work in the forest garden and tackling the buttercups that were strangling some of the plants and taking over the paths. Some lovely pics courtesy of Michael Hill. We will continue to meet on the second Sunday of every month so if you want to do some volunteering in 2019 then come and join us! https://friendsofdalbyforest.wordpress.com/about/
The forest garden was looking particularly lovely this morning as we tidied up for the winter. Still some very juicy blackberries and raspberries and there were lots of bees and insects around too. We also welcomed 3 new volunteers. Thanks everyone for coming!
Next month we will also be working in Lower Dalby getting ready for our Halloween Happenings. The weather will almost certainly have turned cooler by then so what an even more special September morning today.
Our next volunteer morning will be on Sunday 20 September in the Forest Garden. This is situated in the courtyard behind the bike hire building and near the Courtyard cafe in Low Dalby. The task will be from 9am (but if you turn up later that is fine) finishing between 12 noon and 1 pm. Bring gardening tools if you wish but this is optional.
Just let us know you’re coming.
