Good fun was had by all at Transition Town Poole’s first Community Apple Pressing Event in Poole High Street outside No 34 cafe. The juice was delicious – as promised – and over 200 pounds of local apples were chopped, crushed and juiced by young and old. Lots of passing shoppers stopped to look, and join in, and taste the juice – even though it was a bit browner and cloudier than they were used to! Well done to Fizz and Cherry for organising and thanks to No 34 Cafe for use of their facilities.
This was an Abundance project event. Abundance aims to make links between people with surplus fruit and people who need fruit so there’s less wastage at harvest time. If you know someone with fruit going spare or someone who can use it and/or you have time to help out with picking or transporting please get in touch with Cherry via email@example.com or 01202 573081.
