Epic Orchard Work Day!

Epic is the only way to describe the day Transition Llantwit members have had at their Orchard today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The main job today was laying a new bark path to improve access around the site. The only issue being we had to move tonnes of bark from the top of the path down to the orchard… However, although daunted, we were not lacking in endeavour and enthusiasm. Luckily, as we began to flag we were joined by Atlantic College students who kindly gave up their time to help us which we are massively thankful for! We will look forward to returning the favour in the very near future!  After a very long day, (beginning at 10am and finishing at 5.30pm!) we managed to move it all in the end and lay the path successfully.

Other smaller jobs but no less important were also undertaken during the day. Including installing a new water butt which was won in a raffle by one of our members Karen, who then kindly donated to the orchard. The trees were also mulched ready for the approaching warmer weather (we can all hope!!!) as well as lots of weeding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have made an enthusiastic start to the gardening season but there is much work to do over the coming months so we hope to be joined by many more people!
