During the monthly mid-week Queensway Orchard care evening in Cranleigh, several residents helped us to prepare the installation of a new pond within the Orchard, as well as tidying away some fly-tipped fencing and inspecting the planted bulbs, seeds and trees.
The following Saturday at Eashing Cemetery's Orchard Spring Care Task we gave the stone-fruit some tender love and care, by weeding at the base, feeding the trees with fish, blood and bones, added extra bark-chip where necessary, watering and pruning with ten local residents helping out in the orchard with COPSE and the garden space with Waverley Borough Council.
