If you'd like to set up your own Community Juicing Group, you're not alone! Every year organisations as diverse as schools, allotment associations, community orchards, Parish Councils and groups of kitchen-garden enthusiasts host their very own 'Apple Day', where they turn apples which would otherwise go to waste into pure juice. It is fun, productive and a great example of pooling resources. Most importantly, the juice is there for everyone to share and enjoy!
National ‘Apple Day’ began life in 1990 when on October 21st the organisation Common Ground took over the Piazza at Covent Garden in London to bring to life the tremendous importance of apples to our culture, wildlife and landscape. Today, the harvest of apples is celebrated nationwide, on or around the 21st October, or in the case of community juicing groups, whenever the apples are ripe!
Community group events aren't just limited to Apple Days in September and October - there many more fun filled get-togethers, including tree planting days, blossom days, Wassails, orchard maintenance days, and not forgetting cider-making activities!
Many groups will use these events as a way of raising awareness and sometimes funds - for the group, orchard, or for other local, national or global causes which they support.
If you have are interested in pooling resources with other like-minded apple or orchard enthusiasts in order to celebrate all things apple, see our handy guide below. If you need any help choosing the equipment you might need please call us on 01404 890093 or email us at email@example.com.
