Description

Come celebrate and preserve the fruit harvest! Everyone is invited to join us for this family friendly afternoon of activity, fun and skill-sharing in the lovely Townhead Vilage Hall and Orchard - a hidden gem in the centre of the city. There is a growing orchard movement in the city and this is your chance to make the most of your apple (and other fruit) harvest, meet like minded folk, speak to orchard experts, eat some tasty food and think about the possibilities for more community fruit growing in the future.

Here's what will be happening on the day:

12-1 Apple Themed Sunday Lunch made by the Project Cafe.

Childrens activites - Longest peel competion, games, more!

Discussion on "how to let Glasgow's orchards flourish". At the end of the day there will be a chance to think about how orchard interest groups across the city can make the most of their shared skills and resources.
