Events coming up 2016

Leeds Urban Harvest Community Juicing (West Leeds) - Sunday 2nd October

Do you have surplus apples or pears? Join us to turn some of the city's abundance into juice on these two days.

For every 1kg of fruit you bring you can take away 250ml of juice. You'll get to take part in the process and of course you're welcome to donate the fruit/juice so that Leeds Urban Harvest can distribute it to others who need it. You'll get to take part in the whole process: washing, pulverising, pressing, tasting, bottling and pasteurising.

We will have some glass bottles (750ml) available to buy but please bring bottles with you!

If you are planning on coming please pre-register here.

Apple Day is held across the country each year to celebrate apples, orchards and the fruits of our common spaces, gardens and allotments. It was initiated by Common Ground in 1990 as a way of demonstrating that variety and richness matter to a locality and it is possible to effect change where you live. Our Apple Day brings together many groups for a fun and celebratory festival for children and adults alike.
