Volunteers harvesters required

4 volunteers required to pick (delicious) eating apples on 26th Sept  in the Sydenham area. It will be in the morning.
No specialist equipment required, just bring a bag and your willing hands.

There may also be a chance to harvest a nearby pear tree in the afternoon.

Please let me know if you are interested.
Apple picking

Although our plans were changed at the last minute and we were not able to harvest the Discovery apple tree ourselves, we were still able to collect the fruit, already harvested and boxed up for us.
We then went on to harvest a local pear tree. We had a fablous day and received a wonderful haul. All the volunteers went away tired but pleased with their goodies.

A couple of us chopped us all the windfalls and partially damaged fruit and bagged it up for the freezer, to be used for the chutney & jam workshops which will be run over the winter.

BIG thanks to those kind tree owners who shared their fruit with us, and thank you to everyone who helped out on the day!
Love Vera
