Orchard workdays

Orchard workdays offer honest and rewarding graft for those who want to help develop and maintain the Donkey Field Orchard. Everyone is welcome!

Each work day has a co-ordinator who will be there to welcome you and sort out what tasks need to be done.

Work days for 2017 will be on the following dates from 10 am — 2 pm.

  • January 28th – wassailing celebration (note this is 2pm- 4pm)
  • February 25th
  • March 25th
  • April 29th
  • May 27th
  • June 24th
  • July 29th
  • August 26th
  • September 30th
  • October 28th – Apple Day 2pm- 4.30pm
  • November 25th

When coming along to a workday please make sure to bring something to eat and drink and wear appropriate clothing, especially now the nettles have sprung up again.  Even better, bring some thick gloves and a bag to collect some for soup!

What to bring (if you can):

  • Gardening gloves
  • Work clothes with long sleeves and legs (there are thistles and nettles!)
  • Sun cream on hot days

  1. Hello, my fiancee and I joined Pedal recently. We’d love to help with the orchard, but we work weekends – could there be weekday work days please??
