'Wassailing' with residency artists, Felicity Bristow & Susie Wilson
14:30 on 8 March 2020
Craigentinny Telferton Allotments
‘Wassail’ comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase ‘waes hael’, which means ‘good health’.
A celebration of planting two new apple trees on Plot 55b. With apple themed verse, a song and toast to the new trees followed by a walk around the allotment plots to wake the trees on Craigentinny & Telferton Allotment for a bountiful growing season in 2020. Bring a bell, a pan or a pot, to bang or shake! All welcome.
‘... apple tree, we wassail thee,
And hoping thou wilt bear
Hatfuls, capfuls, three bushel bagfuls
And a little heap under the stairs
Hip! Hip! Hooray!’
This event is part of Felicity Bristow & Susie Wilson’s ongoing artist residency at Plot55B, Craigentinny Telferton Allotments working a plot of land over one year. The residency is developed by Art Walk Projects as part of their ‘LandMark’ programme.
