Harvest event 18 & 19 October 2019

Its harvest time again. As we speak, the Gardens team, Action team, staff and students are out and about on campus squirreling away apples for the annual harvest event apple pressing and for distributing across campus. Two harvest dates left if you want to join in: Wednesday 2nd October – Harvesting with staff, students and Action 1pm – 2pm West Park Teaching Hub Wednesday 9th October – Harvesting with staff, students and Action 1pm – 2pm Ashby Road Orchard

And here is a flyer for this year’s activities. Delighted to have Studio Polpo architects here to make & play with sticks – cool dens for adults and kids! Here is a link to a project they were involved with earlier this year in the woods. Gillian Whiteley & Geoff Bright [the gathering…the chewing] music makers extraordinaire lead us on beating the bounds walk on Saturday – finishing off with the legendary Bake Off prize giving and communal feast. (Campus Apple Bake Off rules : ingredients to include apples or locally foraged or harvested fruit – dish can be sweet, savory, vegan or jam/preserves and under 12s category.)
