We’ll continue the great start we made last week, working our way along the tree rows, pruning and weeding each tree, and putting in rebar posts for a semi permanent electric fence around each tree row. Expect measuring, hammering, carrying, weeding, chatting and flapjack eating!

Sunday 17th March – Twenty Trees Challenge

We’re aiming to plant 20 new fruit trees in one day! We have funding to plant and guard 20 new trees in the orchard, and as the end of the planting seasons looms, we thought it would be fun to challenge ourselves to plant them all in one day.

Friday 22nd March – Oakbrook Farm tree planting day

We’ll be planting trees with Stroud Micro Dairy and ZeroDig to create a new shelterbelt to protect the cattle when they’re out on exposed slopes, and a new coppice to be managed for woodchip production. More info coming soon.

Sunday 24th March – Orchard Work Party

We will be pruning and weeding the trees, working our way along the rows. Come and help give the trees some tlc before they burst in to leaf and put on a new season of growth.

We are proud to be taking part in the national Agroforestry Open Weekend, offering a free tour of the orchard and the other recent agroforestry plantings around the farm.
