APPLE JUICING EVENT SATURDAY 12 OCTOBER 2019 – FURTHER INFORMATION.

PLEASE APPLY THE USUAL RULES OF COMMON SENSE.

We will juice apples using simple manual equipment which crushes and presses apples, it is of course potentially dangerous. Please monitor and supervise children and excitable adults.

We will take all the usual precautions to ensure equipment and juice is wholesome and are confident you will enjoy drinking it, but this is at your own risk. If you make your own cider or apple juice, the alcohol in the cider tends to avoid problems with bacteria but, with apple juice, cleanliness is more important.

THE DAY

The original idea was to cater for anyone with apples which were likely to go to waste because they had no way to juice them.

In addition, we are keen that everyone has the opportunity to use the equipment, and try the fresh juice, and so we will have some apples of our own to juice too.

We aim to have some food available to complement the freshly pressed juice, we hope others will bring more to share.

No doubt the weather will be kind and it will be possible to press apples outside! However the hall and its facilities will be available and we will be able to juice inside if it is wet.

 

WHO WE ARE.

Gardeners from in, and around the Teme Valley come together to enjoy an evening in the company of like-minded people. Our members vary from those who are very new to gardening to those who have been tending their plots for decades.

We aim to entertain our members with talks by experts from all realms of gardening, help them with any gardening advice they may be seeking, organise the occasional outing, share our plants and produce and, of course, provide refreshments and time to chat.

Suggestions for speakers or activities are always welcomed by our committee and we are pleased to see the splendid gardening-themed photographs being submitted for display on our website - more please.

We are very happy for the website to be used to forward any requests for advice; questions or suggestions to which we will either respond immediately or at the following meeting.

What to do in October:

Set aside any fine days for digging, so that Winter frosts can continue the work for you by breaking down the dug-over soil to leave it in good condition for Spring planting.
You can also divide established pants now and create two - or more- for the price of one!
Carefully dig them up, shake off excess soil, and cut up the healthy portions into fist-sized pieces with an old kitchen knife.
Cut back the top leafy growth, and then plant the new sections 30 cm (12 in) apart, at the same depth as before.
Firm in well and water generously.

 

Meetings

 

Doors open at 7.00pm. Entrance is £2.50 which includes refreshments. Our speakers are introduced at 7.30pm.
We aim to provide a light-hearted competition, an opportunity to get advice on any gardening topic, time to shop at our plant and produce stall and a space to advertise any spare plants members wish to pass on each others.
