On 18 April we made a start on our new Willow Garden, with tasters of what can be created using live willow. And we planted a new Willow tree, the first in a series of remembering Betty Pearce. All welcome to our next planting event which will now be on Sun 7 June from midday. (Please note planting session on 16 May is postponed).
On 29 March about 20 of us took our first steps towards the creation of a new willow garden and orchard. The windy wet weather was ideal for the live willow planting and under the guidance of artist Angie Baker and garden designer Dan Shea a wavy willow screen was planted, and large bed cleared of old and overgrown shrubs ready for the garden redesign and orchard planting. Next sessions are Sat 18 April 2pm and Sun 7 March midday. On 18 April the session will be followed by our AGM 5.30pm – 6.30pm in Chestnuts Community Centre. All welcome to join us. Drinks and refreshments provided. Watch this space for AGM agenda and papers.
