Please bring gloves and a trowel if you have them.

I’m volunteering on the Fruitfulness Project at Windmill Hill City Farm. I’m getting in contact with local orchard groups to let you know that we have purchased fruit pressing equipment which is available to borrow / hire, and to invite you to bring any surplus apples to our first Apple Day celebration on Sunday 21st Oct from 12-7pm at the Farm on Philip St, Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 4EA www.windmillhillcityfarm.org.uk/events/appleday.html
We are also running jam and chutney making sessions – see www.windmillhillcityfarm.org.uk/course/workshops.html
