Orchard Maintenance Workshop - Note changed date

  • Sun, November 10, 2019
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Pettys Orchard


  • Anyone can come.

We planted 11 specimen apricot trees in the area between the marquee and the gate last month and need to check on these. More work in the nursery. Possibly grass cutting by mower and whipper-snipper. More watering, weeding, other maintenance tasks, including stacking prunings for later burn-off. Most likely our pruners will be at work and you can watch or join in. Discussion and planning over coffee.

 Work with our experienced volunteers and learn some new skills.

This is a free event. You do not need to book and no experience is necessary. Contact heritagefruitssociety@gmail.com for further information.

Coffee, tea and refreshments are provided.

Wear sturdy boots and clothing, as well as a hat and sunscreen. If you wish, you can bring a pair of gardening gloves and your own secateurs, preferably with your name clearly written on them.

Address: cnr Homestead and Monckton Rds, Templestowe, 3106 Victoria, Australia.
