Celebrate the fruits that autumn brings and the hidden trails of Highbury Park in this fun-filled community event, Saturday October 11, 12 – 5pm.
Highbury Orchard Community in conjunction with Four Seasons Garden Project is hosting A Highbury Harvest with this year’s pickings of apples. A press and scatter means children and adults alike can have a turn at making apple juice! You can also bring your own apples to press. Please bring sterilised bottles, and for a small charge take your pressed harvest home. (See important details on peopleandland.org.uk/events.)
A feast of treats and refreshments will be available to buy from the Four Seasons Garden Project and at the Highbury Orchard.
Children may explore the woodland trail from Four Seasons Garden Project on Queensbridge Road onto the Orchard brick floor. Just ask for a free map. Artist Layla Tutt will be making and designing lanterns amongst other crafts for her forthcoming November project ‘The Song of the Woods’. At the Orchard you will find honey-themed delights to make, taste and buy, including the annual Great Honey Bake Off where you can be the judge!
Parking is available at the car park accessed from Shutlock Lane. A few spaces for people with disabilities are available at Four Seasons, Queensbridge Road. A Highbury Harvest is a free event, and all donations are welcomed to support Highbury Orchard Community projects.
