Futures Forum: The apple tree
Sidmouth has its own community orchard:
Futures Forum: Sidmouth Community Orchard
And Sidmouth has its own, District Council-run, community nature reserve, with several apple trees.
The picking and pressing of the apples has become an annual event.
Pop along next Saturday with a bottle or two to take away some fresh juice:
A pressing engagement at the Knapp
Monday 22 September
There’s a nip in the air in the mornings, so it can only mean one thing.
The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is upon us – and it’s time for apple pressing at the Knapp Community Nature Reserve on Station Road in Sidmouth.
Come along on Saturday 4 October between 10am and 1pm to help the East Devon District Council Countryside team pick, chop and press the apples.
You can also bring some of your own apples along to press – remember to bring a container to take some juice away with you. This is a free event and everyone is welcome.
For more information please call 01395 517557 or email Countryside@eastdevon.gov.uk
