Harvesting this Saturday – The Big One!

by Jamie on October 5, 2010

This Saturday we’re looking to harvest as much as possible for the upcoming festivities this Sunday (the Global Day of Doing in Dalston) and next Saturday (the Apple Day at Stoke Newington Farmers Market).

Also this Sunday morning we will be joining Lisa from Happy Kitchen in London Fields for a cooking workshop using some of the fruit that we’ve harvested. Lisa specialises in cooking without the use of sugar so if you’re interested in finding out how to do this, come along. We’ll be meeting at 11 at The Bakery, Arch 402, Mentmore Terrace in London Fields.

We’ve identified some good looking trees in public spaces and have got in contact with local residents who have trees in their gardens and can’t reach those last bits of fruit. Hopefully we’ll have a couple more under our belt by Saturday.

We’re very happy to say that a bunch of climbers from the Castle Climbing Centre are coming to lend a hand for those more inaccessible spots that the pickers and a step ladder just can’t reach.

As ever we’ll be meeting at the Jolly Butchers at midday. If you have a bike it would be a good idea to bring it along but not to worry if you don’t as there’ll be people on foot.

A busy weekend ahead!
