    Mowing and whipper-snippering, plus some weeding and checking of nursery plants. Watering if necessary, and checking the nets. We'll collect some mulch to spread in the nursery to keep the weeds down. We have air-layered some hawthorns, so will check them to see they are OK.

    New-comers welcome. Please email heritagefruitssociety@gmail.com so we know you are coming. Morning tea is a chance to discuss issues and meet with other volunteers.

    We will be whipper-snippering the long grass. Mowing if necessary and weather conditions permit. Checking the netting prior to fruit set, and putting nets on if conditions permit. Watering the small trees if necessary. Painting labels on trees if conditions allow. Discussion of various issues - netting, planting plums, looking after trees over summer.

    Plenty of discussion time over morning tea.

    Please wear sturdy shoes and a hat.
