Abundance Fruit Day Will Soon Be Here
Traditional Apple Day is a firm local favourite
Abundance London is again organising its traditional Apple Day which has become a firm favourite in the autumn calendar.
Abundance Fruit Day, will take place on Saturday 1 October 2016, 12.30-4pm at St Michael & All Angels, Bath Road, W4 1TX.
All through September local schools have been going out with Abundance on picking trips to nearby trees. Although the Chiswick apple crop has been terrible, pears have been good. For the first time ever fruit from further afield has been accepted, but as it would still be going to waste, they say they have swallowed their scruples.
The huge apple press will again be in operation, this year serviced by their brand new scratter, purchased with funding from the Chiswick Area Forum (London Borough of Hounslow). They need lots of manpower (and childpower) to keep the scratter fed.
