We’re going on a fruit hunt! Yes! Get your wellies on and join us for an autumn forage to uncover the secret fruits of the forest, park and street! Environmental activist Gemma will be your guide through the urban undergrowth for an abundant autumn morning of scrumping and fruit salvage! If you know of any good fruit spots in the Princes Park area - please get in touch before the hunt and we'll hope to include them!
We’ll then head back to the Grapes Community Garden on Windsor St, L8 1XE (with indoor kitchen at John Archer Hall if raining) for a big fruit production session with the Squash team! Depending on what we find we might make chutney, rosehip syrup and/or other fruity things!

Welcome to the fourth year of Food for Real – the UK’s only free film festival focussed on food. Brought to you by Liverpool’s socially-engaged, creative food enterprise, Squash Nutrition, the festival seeks to explore the environmental, cultural and political impacts of the foods we grow, eat, waste and share.
This year, we embrace the seasons and begin a new food adventure, together. Journey with us through the seed-sowing and green-shoots of spring, the fire and spice of summer, the earthy fruitfulness of autumn and the contemplative, stillness of winter. Join us! foodforreal.co.uk
