Many thanks to the magnificent team of Astra Zeneca employees who came down to the orchard and donated their own time and effort last week. They worked really hard, and the orchard looks amazing as a result. They weeded and mulched the circles around the trees, repaired the herb garden and waged war on the brambles. Astra Zeneca also donated some funds for the mulch and some other supplies, and we are very grateful for this help.
The orchard now has an observation hive, which will be open to view on most maintenance sessions throughout the warmer months.
We are continuing to fundraise for the upkeep and development of the hive, so if you would like to adopt some bees, click the donate button below (minimum on-line donation is £1). Alternatively you can donate by cash or cheque at any of our events.
