Upcoming Harvest Events in Hackney

by Jamie on September 12, 2010

We’re now moving into a busy period with lots of harvesting to do and there are three events coming up which we will be attending.

First up is the Stoke Newington Common Fun Day on Sunday 19th September from 1-5pm. N16Mag has the info and it’s sounding great:

This year there will be lots of art and crafts activities for children, including making kites, decorating the fence, face painting, a dressing up corner… and more. There will also be lots of music, including B Block who started their career at Stoke Newington School (in the music (B) block ), the Beat Club, Homertones as well as local choirs, poets, dance, drum workshop,…

Other activities include a photography exhibition with historical and recent photographs of the area, green woodworking, Dr Bike and the very popular willow weaving. And of course there will also be plenty of savoury food (Moroccan, Indian, Halal, Turkish), and most importantly, cake

The Common looks great these days, thanks in great measure to the Stoke Newington Common Users Group. Let’s hope the weather’s OK. Should be a lot of fun.

We’ll be there with Transition Town Stoke Newington and we’ll be bringing the juicer along, so if you have a stack of apples that you don’t know what to do with then bring them along.

Then in October there are two more events – the 10/10/10 Global Work Party and the Growing Communties Apple Day. More info on both of these coming soon!
