Celebrating with our wood-fired oven.

We will commence at 10.30am with a welcome cup of something hot, followed at 11.00am by a demonstration of winter pruning of fruit trees.  This will include plums, peaches, apples and cherries.

At 12.00 noon we will see how to train fruit trees as espaliers.  We will demonstrate on our wall of heritage apples along the tennis court fence.  Given enough time, we will also turn in a green manure crop to increase soil organic matter.

By 1.00pm we will be eating locally-grown roast beef and vegetables out of our pizza oven.  Grow Local!!!

Entry will be by gold coin donation which will get you two hours  demonstration of pruning and training of fruit trees.

And if you would like to stay on for lunch ……
