Fruit at Stirley Farm – 8th October 2011

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust would like to invite you to the first of many Saturday morning events at Stirley Farm….

Soft Fruit Cuttings and Orchard Planning
Stirley Community Farm
Saturday 8th October from 10am to 12 noon

It’s time to think about the fruit we will be growing at Stirley. We hope you will be able to join us on Sat 8th October, when we will be inviting everyone to bring cuttings of soft fruit such as currants, raspberries, gooseberries and strawberries to bring on in a nursery bed, for planting out next spring. We hope there will be enough for you to take some cuttings home. Advisors will be on hand to demonstrate how to prepare the ground for the cuttings, how to grow them in pots, and how to care for them in the future.

Up hill from the veg beds, we have sketched some ideas for our orchard, so we hope you will come and share your ideas and experiences of fruit tree varieties with us, and join in the many tree planting events we will be having this winter. We haven’t committed ourselves to any varieties or suppliers yet – so we hope you will come and join us at this planning stage. Free event.
