Growing Spaces at New Mills Community Orchard Apple Day

appleday6 poster

New Mills Community Orchard will be holding their 6th annual Apple Day celebration as part of the festival on Sunday 28th September, 2pm-4pm, at the High Lea orchard.

The Community Orchard supports the Growing Spaces project, and it is anticipated that this year’s event will include two things in particular that may interest you:

  • a Produce Swap table: if you’ve a glut of fruit or veg crops at the moment, bring surplus produce along and swap them with other growers
  • Growing advice from local gardeners: if you’ve a question about growing fruit or veg in New Mills, come along and ask the advisors

As well as these, of course its a great family afternoon out, and has the added attraction of the Powderkegs Morris group!

Hope to see you there!

Julian, on behalf of New Mills Community Orchard

  1. I have potted up about a dozen baby strawbs for the table. Also a couple of fruit shrubs spare. Because I will be at Spring Bank most of the day i can deliver them either to a person or cart them onto the orchard the day *before* and hope for,the best. What do you suggest?
