Project Description

The site is wheelchair-friendly and we have several raised beds for easy access. The site is open every day in daylight hours and we have weekly volunteer sessions on Tuesdays between 10am and 2pm where we welcome people of any ability and experience. Always a long list of tasks! Seasonal jobs include fruit tree pruning, hazel coppicing, planting and we are currently discussing a new mowing regime to encourage wildlife and wild flowers.
