On Sunday 12 January 2020, we greeted the trees with music, song and noise. We gave each tree a libation of apple juice, and we hung toast in the branches. We danced in a circle. All of these activities are traditional ways of saying ‘Wassail’ – good health – to the orchard. And Wassailing also happens to be an excellent way of keeping warm and making friends in the dark days of winter. We hope that the trees appreciate our efforts and will reward us with a good harvest this year. A massive thank you to everyone who turned up and put so much goodwill into it all, and especially to everyone who put so much into our Donations Pot.
