Volunteer registration: Peacehaven Community Orchard Saturday 17th August 2019

 Registration is closed for this event

Saturday 17th August at Peacehaven Community orchard 10.30am - 4.30pm 

Help us to care for the trees!

We are working with Peacehaven Community Orchard to plant an orchard which will extend to over 100 apple trees. There are now 80 apple trees, including a number of rare Sussex apple varieties and other heritage varieties.

We need to repair some of the shelter nets which have been damaged by the wind. The orchard is in a very exposed location and the young apple trees need protection from desiccating winds. Each tree has been protected with a 1.8m shelter net on 4 posts to protect. We have planted a shelter belt which will eventually shelter the orchard.

There are also a number of other tree care tasks that need doing including mulching and weeding. Some of the work isn't heavy. Please come for all or part of the day. Kids welcome.
