It’s time to WASSAIL!

The Friends of Agnes Riley Gardens will be in the garden every Sunday 11-1pm, even through the winter. It will soon be time to start planting seeds.

There are also have plans for some Saturday sessions, starting with Saturday 13th Jan when we will be pruning the apple trees and some of the bushes in the garden. There will be a pruning workshop between 1pm and 2.30pm in the garden and the orchard outside the garden, followed by Wassailing at 3pm with the Balham Ukeleles.

What is Wassailing I hear you say? It is a chance to drink to the health of the apple trees and ward off evil spirits. We will be reviving traditional songs and old customs.

Come along to find out more – it won’t last long – all over by 4pm!

Please bring friends and family.
