With over 1.5 tonnes of local fruit so far saved from waste by Harvest Share, there will be a chance to find out more about the scheme at the Apple Days at Mary Arden’s Farm, Wilmcote on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 October.
Transition Stratford will be running a stall on both days which will give more details about Harvest Share’s progress this year – as well as showing some of the varieties of apples we have found at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. There will also be opportunities to buy jams and juices made from fruit collected by Harvest Share over the past two months – and live demonstrations of apple pressing.
Transition Stratford’s stall be one of three dozen stalls, exhibitions and events at the Apple Days. For more information about the Apple Days and Mary Arden’s Farm, see the website of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust www.shakespeare.org.uk.
