Apple Day

All things apple every October

For the last few years we’ve been involved in helping to organise ‘Apple Day’ at HEART in Headingley. This free event takes place on a Saturday afternoon in October – this year October 24th 2020. We concentrate on the core activity – community juicing of apples brought in by local people, supplemented by some of the apples from the trees on our sites. With help from Leeds Urban Harvest and their equipment, apples get pressed (child labour definitely welcome) and the juice drunk or bottled. We’ll be juicing from about 1.30 to 4.00 – assuming we have enough apples!

Lots of other things will happen as well. In past years there ave been activities for children, stalls, talks (cider making, for instance), music an Morris dancers …..
