Apple Day 2010

Sustainable Bungay are joining forces with the Suffolk Wildlife Trust in their annual Apple Day at Castle Meadow on October 2nd (12-4). There will be all manner of fruity events, tastings and a press for juicing your surplus apples. So, if you have any apples you’d like pressed bring them along and we’ll help you to make some delicious apple juice! To make things even easier, we can collect your apples from you on Saturday morning and take them to the press; just have them picked, bagged / boxed and ready for us to collect (contact email at the end of this post).

Jim Cooper of Clarkes Lane Orchard will be identifying apples, so do bring any mystery fruit along. You’ll also be able to find out more about our new Abundance of Fruit project. We’re working alongside Halesworth in Transition and Sustainable Beccles who have had great success with their neighbourhood tree mapping and Apple Shareing. We are planning to hold community produce exchanges at the Library too, like our Give and Grow Seedling Swap in May.
