The Fruit tree planting and Advent Quiet Day is led by Jonathan Herbert and Richard Thornbury.
“Deepening our Connection with God and Creation”. Jonathan will lead 3 reflections on ‘Separation and Connection’ and there will be time for each participant to plant a tree as a sign of the Advent Hope.
Richard will lead an opportunity to help planting the friary’s new orchard that will be made up of 30 trees of local, heritage varieties of apple, pear, plum and cherry. This is part of our wider conservation work and is being planted as much to provide flowers, fruit and habitat for wildlife as fruit for us to eat.
