Sister Catherine's Apple Tree

Sister Catherine is one of our long-standing learners and a pillar of the local community. She can often be found using the computers and having a friendly chat with other learners and volunteers.

She had been having a little trouble planting up an apple tree she had recently bought, so we were happy to help! In a lovely bright spot in her garden, we dug a hole and after giving the soil a nutritious boost with some compost, tied and secured the tree. Here is Sister Catherine giving the roots a good soak...

Hopefully she will see it flower and bear fruit this year and be treated to some tasty apples for years to come!
