PICKING EVENT-

On Saturday September 14 we'll be visiting and picking fruit from local trees in Kimberley!

Volunteers meet at the Kimberley Community Garden to form picking teams, get tree location details, grab ladders and picking tools and then have some fun picking apples! After the bounty is collected, we meet back at the Kimberley Community Garden to drop off apples for the pressing event the following Sunday!

PRESSING EVENT-

On Sunday September 22 we'll be processing our locally picked apples in to delicious and nutritious juice!

Volunteers meet again at the Kimberley Community Garden to take part in the fun, drink some juice, and of course take some home! Any left over juice from the event will be donated to the local food bank. Following the pressing event is Wildsight's harvest party potluck, beginning at 1pm and located in the Kimberley Community Garden!
