***Join us on 24th May 2014 for Pre-Harvest Lavender Plant Care***

There's lots to do in preparation for this year's harvest in July and we need YOUR help! 

Can you spare at least an hour between 9.30am and 1.30pm
on Saturday 24th May to take part in pre-harvest preparation?
We'll be generally tidying up the rows, trimming & lopping and clearing pathways ready for the harvest at the end of July.

Light refreshments will be provided and this is a great opportunity to meet new people and contribute to this year's community harvest.  If the weather is not so good on the day we have lots of cuttings to be planted in our cosy polytunnel so there will be an alternative activity.

If you would like to take part please contact us so have an idea of numbers to cater for on the day.


Want to help out sooner?  See our Volunteering page for other dates we'll be on the field.
