Pressing engagement for apple juice lovers
6:00pm Friday 11th October 2013 in News
PEOPLE can make their own fruit juice at an apple pressing day.
Queen’s Park Community Garden is teaming up with Swindon Climate Action Network (SCAN) to host the event on Saturday, October 19, from 10am to 3pm, in the secret garden at Queen’s Park.
Steve Litchfield, chair of SCAN, said: “We are keen to get everyone involved who is producing and consuming local food as it is good for the environment. So many people have a half-forgotten apple tree in their garden that this would be a brilliant way of getting started producing some of your own food.
“Bring along apples – or pears – from your garden, or perhaps a neighbour’s garden, then come along to chop, crush and press the fruit to produce lots of lovely, fresh juice to take away for your own use. “Also bring some bottles or other containers to take away the juice.
“We have run similar events in previous years and have always been amazed with how many people have apples going to waste in their own back gardens.”
There will also be locally produced hot food on offer, tours of the garden and a story teller.
Everyone is welcome and there is no charge for admission or for producing juice.
