February Work Day
13 February 2010
Saturday 13th February was the first GFE Site Work Day for 2010 and a good turnout of volunteers allowed us to tackle some large tasks.
A major job was giving the willow windbreak its annual prune - a task that gets bigger and bigger every year! Some of the off-cuts were replanted to fill in the thinner areas further down the site, but we will have to decide what to do with the large pile of willow cuttings that are left.
The site for the proposed fruit orchard was prepared. The layout for the trees was agreed and planting holes dug - the ground turned out to be significantly better than expected and we are now ready to plant the trees.
A number of other jobs were tackled - tunnel wall washing, general tiding up - and as usual there was a great spread of food for lunch.
A grand day out in the fresh air!
