This year is the 11th annual apple day in the grounds of St Elizabeth’s
This year is the 11th annual apple day in the grounds of St Elizabeth's near Much Hadham. It's great fun picking apples with family and friends, complete with hard hats and telescopic apple pickers. Last year more than 2,000kg of apples were picked at the event.
Taking place on Saturday, September 28 from 11-4pm there will be live music, craft stalls and numerous children's activities. Homegrown organic produce and refreshments will be on sale, and apples can be picked to take home or donated to the charity.
St Elizabeth's supports around 250 vulnerable children and adults with severe learning disabilities and other complex medical needs, often caused or complicated by epilepsy and or autism. Its horticultural enterprise offers them experience in planting, growing and selling a wide range of produce. There's the opportunity to work at the orchard - including learning coppicing skills - on the growing beds or polytunnels, greenhouses and potting shed to produce a wide range of products for sale including apple juice, perennials, potted plants, herbs and vegetables, eggs and seasonal gifts.
For more information, go to stelizabeths.org.uk or follow the charity on social media and do go and join the fun on the 28th and take home some delicious produce at the great apple day event.
