Thank you to those of you who came along to Apple day, our very first event at the St Ives Community Orchard. So lovely to see so many people there enjoying themselves & to get so many positive comments, it made all that hard work so worth it & we were blessed with beautiful weather.
On the Beach Productions has created a beautiful short film of the event. Have a watch.
We'd also like to thank the St.Ives Community Fund for their recent donation of £450 towards the orchard. We've already bought some great new tools (Japanese razor hoes, mini mattock pick axes & some more hoes) with the donation and look forward to trying them out tomorrow at our work party.
Orchard work parties continue every Wed 4 - 6.30pm, everyone welcome. Tools, gloves & snacks provided. It was lovely to have some new volunteers last week & we have made a big enough pile for another bonfire.
