GATHER UP YOUR GARDEN APPLES AND COME ALONG; rain permitting, we’ll be setting up the hired apple press from Urban Harvest in Crooklands Orchard in the Park tomorrow afternoon for apple juicing.
Now is therefore the time to gather up all those decent apples on garden trees, and bring them along to turn them into juice. Please can you wash the fruit before you bring it. Windfall are fine as long as they are not decaying or badly damaged.
The fruit in the Community Orchard has nearly all gone, but we’ll be sending out foragers to gather the fruit on other Park trees.
All apples go together to make an apple juice blend. 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 or frozen. Donations to our Local Giving page are also appreciated.
If it is dreadful weather the event will be cancelled so please check here first if wet. Otherwise, if it has been raining please make sure you have study footwear, you know what the Park can be like.
Children must be accompanied by adults. Clean hands are vital.
