Royate Hill Community Orchard



Come & join Mike and the gang for the 1st full Apple Pressing session of the season – this Saturday at Royate Hill Community Orchard & Allotment!

We’ll be picking, chopping & pressing from 11am to 5pm, so bring a suitable container in which to take away some of the juice you have just pressed (freshly pressed juice in a sealed container, such as glass or plastic bottle with screw top, is good to drink for 4/5 days if refrigerated). Apple pressing can be a fairly messy & sticky activity, so come suitably dressed.
Kids with adults are very welcome, we have a small hand press which they can use to press their own juice.
Bring a food contribution towards shared vegan lunch, usually around 1.30pm.

The Apple Pressing is a part of the volunteer workday at Royate Hill – every 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month from 11-4/5. There’s always plenty of other work to do if the pressing gets too crowded. For background info read this – Royate_history_info

The community orchard operates according to permaculture principles (to the best of our ability) – we learn as we go along so come along and learn with us. No experience is necessary!

For more info, other workshops (pruning, grafting etc), group visits etc please contact Mike Feingold on 07768915423.
