There are signs of Spring all around us. Daffodils, snow drops and crocuses bring colour to the landscape and the first shoots of wild garlic are appearing. The days are getting noticeably longer and warmer and there is a certain feeling in the air, as if the farm is poised, ready to jump into life.

Spring is a busy time at Trill. Our Wednesday volunteer days begin again this week, along with weekly farm lunches prepared by Chris in The Old Dairy Kitchen. Pruning of the pear and apple orchards is almost complete; we're hoping for a good crop as well as a warm spring for pollination. The lambing season starts this week too; good weather is very important for the survival rates of the lambs, so it's a tense time!

Meanwhile, in the office we're finishing off the exciting schedule of courses and events that we hope will inspire you to adopt a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. There's something for everyone, no matter what your skill level or (lack of) experience. Our Spring Family Camp in May promises to be our best yet, so if you are looking to switch off, reconnect with your family, and enjoy some outdoor fun, book up now!
