Ravenscraig Walled Garden
Join us in our community orchard at Ravenscraig Walled Garden for our annual Apple Day celebration! 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.
We’ll have a fun packed afternoon of apple activities for all of the family. As usual, we’ll be pressing apples to make apple juice – it would be great if people could bring their own apples along to share and make juice with! We’ll also have baked apples and apple pies, children’s crafts and a ‘Who can peel the longest apple peel’ competition.
We’ll be giving tours of our orchard (all of our fruit trees are Scottish and some varieties are very local) and Appletreeman, Andrew Lear, will also be offering advice and information on growing apples, including apple identification, troubleshooting and planning.
This is an open event – no need to book, just come along! You don’t need to bring apples with you if you don’t have them, we’ll have plenty!
