Winter times and dates

November 6, 2012

Our next Saturday date is Saturday 17th November 10am-2pm.  When we’ll hopefully be giving the Edible Forest some much needed love and attention.  Last year the trees went to very wet and compacted soil and with our drainage problems and this year’s incessant rain they have had a tough time of it.  They are more trees and shrubs to go in, many which have been waiting in pots all year, but first we need to improve the soil conditions a little and Tim Foster will be showing us the way.
In December we’ll be cutting back our opening hours to 11am to 3pm.  We are closed on Boxing day and on the 19th we’ll just be open 12-2pm to observe the (nearly) shortest day at the winter equinox by eating cake and pottering around in the polytunnels,  I am not sure about opening on a Saturday in December as people are generally very busy but let me know if you think we should.
