Join us anytime from 12-4pm for:

the joys of our local fruit-picking project gathered together around the
apple press and tables where it’s all about chopping, pressing, scrunching
and bottling.
•        Join-in seasonal gardening activities throughout the day – there are
barrow loads of compost to use to prepare the growing fields for next
year’s growing season – ‘mulch-tastic’!
•        Bulb-planting: nectar-rich, early to flower crocus will be being planted
around the beehives and on the site’s edge .. good food for the bees and
we have free bulbs to give away to those planting at community
sites/public neighbourhood spaces in Waltham Forest – come along and find
out more.
•        Preparing green tomato chutney: With the tomato harvest season drawing
to a close – and the blight setting in; the Hawkwood kitchen will be
cooking up a green tomato chutney storm .. cooking hands welcome
