The apple juicing event will take place this Sunday in the Parkinson’s Park Community Orchard. If it is dreadful weather the event will be cancelled so please check here first if wet.
We are pleased to offer this fun event for local residents to come and press locally grown apples for their own use. We have hired the community juicing equipment from Leeds Urban Harvest and the event is supported by The Orchard Project .
The fruit in the Community Orchard and on the Park trees has nearly all gone, but what is still there can be picked, washed, and juiced.
You are welcome to bring fruit from your own apple trees, it will be mixed together with others to form a blend. Please can you wash the fruit before you bring it.
If you want to take juice away, bring your own clean bottles or jugs, the juice can be stored in a fridge for 3-4 days.
The recent rain in the Park makes the layer of clay on the surface of the soil muddy, so make sure to wear suitable clothes and shoes – especially if you want to pick apples.
Children must be accompanied by adults.
