Apple Day 2019
Saturday 26th October: 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Join us in our community orchard at Ravenscraig Walled Garden for our annual Apple Day! Every year the humble apple is celebrated up and down the country with events dedicated to showing the rich variety of apples that we grow in the UK, local varieties and their importance to our heritage.
Take a tour round the orchard, get your questions answered by our gardeners and enjoy apple themed food and drink such as baked apples, mulled juice and apple cakes.
This year we’ll also have our new apple press in action, offering people the chance to use our new super fast equipment to try their hand at pressing their own apples in to juice! Suggested donation: £3 per carrier bag of apples. Bring your own apples, and some empty bottles to take your juice home. We’ll have helpers around to assist with the pressing.
We’ll also be branching out this year, and combining our Apple Day with a Pumpkin Rescue event!! Did you know 15 million pumpkins that are binned every Halloween? We’ll be exploring the issue of pumpkin waste at this time of year, and offering tips and recipes to stop your pumpkin ending up in landfill after Halloween!
This is an outdoor event so please wear suitable clothing.
This is an open event – no need to book, just come along!
