Horfield Organic Community Orchard was well Wassailed by over 130 local people, on Saturday 15th January. “We were delighted to offer delicious mulled juice pressed from our own apples. This is thrilling because it shows the growing fruitfulness of our maturing trees,” said Shannon Smith, the co-ordinator. “It was lovely to see the pleasure in the faces of everyone as we celebrated the orchard, and called forth a rich harvest for this year.”

This pioneering local food project welcomes new active, or supporting, members. No previous fruit-growing experience is needed. To find out more please contact: Shannon Smith, e-mail: [email protected], call 0117 373 1587 or visit their website www.avonorganicgroup.org.uk
