We host events throughout the year at our community garden in Clifton.
Every January we host our annual Wassail ceremony which generally involves getting together sampling the cider from the past year, banging some pots and hitting an apple tree for good luck! Sounds weird?!...It is but it's also good fun!
Every year around mid October we host an Apple Day where we invite the local community to visit with their apples and make use of our scratter and press. We also have a local cider bar where you can sample Blue Barrel Cider, a BBQ with local pork and apple sausages, stalls selling apple related produce and apple games for the kids such as apple bobbing, apple printing and the longest peel competition.
Our annual Summer Fair is always a hit - With a local ale and cider bar, Allotment BBQ, local produce stalls and loads of activities for the kids including arts & recycled crafts and making pizzas on our clay oven. We even have Pulp Friction making bike powered ice cream and Lush creating some delightful bath bombs. Bouncy castles, food, booze what's not to like?
Talks & workshops
Throughout the year we host seasonal workshops ranging from fruit tree grafting and pruning to creating a rocket stove from recycled materials. We also offer bespoke cider tasting days and specialist talks on cider, trees and orchard maintenance. If you are interested in an up to date list of our workshops, visit the community garden website
