It’s Apple Day!
Today, Comrie Community Orchard celebrated its annual harvest with a festival featuring local artisanal makers and produce, activities for families - and a whole lot of apples!
It’s a chance to meet the volunteers who have been keeping the orchard all year round. Planted at Cultybraggan Camp in April 2011, the orchard is a real community garden intended for anyone to spend time in and enjoy.
Apple Day is a kind of harvest festival party, when the local community are invited to taste and buy many of the apple varieties grown (there are 40 varieties on site) and to enjoy delicious fresh apple juice (or if you are under 5, go toffee apple bonkers).
The Community Orchard is cared for and maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers called the Orchard Working Group, with a work party meeting on the first Sunday of each month.
Thanks for sharing al your hard work with us! Today was a wonderful and friendly way to find out about food production, ecology and gardening though meeting some of the region's best makers.
