Join us at the community garden and orchard in Ravenscraig Walled Garden for our Apple Day. This is a free event with no need to book, just pop along!
There will be hot drinks, mulled apple juice and apple cake.
- Apple Pressing*
- Dr Bike
- Try an e-bike
- Chat to our gardeners
*We’ll also have our apple press in action to offer anyone with excess apples the chance to press them in to juice. You can press your own but we’ll have some helpers around to assist. Bring along some empty bottles to take your juice home.
You can enjoy a walk round the gardens and through the orchard to see the fruit trees and maybe even get inspired to plant one at home. Our gardeners will be available for any questions.
This is an outdoor event so please wear suitable clothing.
Directions and Accessibility
There is unmarked parking on site. Please note the terrain is mostly flat and the paths are gravel. The venue is outdoors with the exception of the working cabin which is accessible to wheelchairs.
Please note the orchard area of our gardens is not recommended for wheelchairs due to steep access and narrow and uneven pathways.
The gates to the garden are located at the Dysart end of Ravenscraig park; on the corner of Dysart Road and West Quality Street. You will see gates entering into Ravenscraig Park. Just past these gates are two green metal gates beside a red brick wall – that is the entrance to Ravenscraig Walled Garden. Go through the green gates and follow the path around to your right past the car park. Keep to the right and you will see a big space with lots of allotments. If you look to the left, you will see a green ‘cabin’ with a polytunnel and raised beds. That is where we meet. If no-one there, people might be in our old plot – Go past the two flower beds on the left and you will see a green hedge in the left. Our community garden is behind the hedge on the left. It has a big brown shed on it.
