Apple Pressing Day | Diwrnod Gwasgu Afalau

October 23rd, 2017 | Posted by llangollen garden in Events - (Comments Off on Apple Pressing Day | Diwrnod Gwasgu Afalau)

We had a wonderful time pressing apples at the community garden. Over 50 people came along to help out, there was music, laughter and lots of apples and of course juice! Great teamwork on the day meant we got through a tremedous number of apples, producing juice to drink and take away. We also replenished our compost bays with the apple mush. Of course we also left plenty of apples on our tree for the local wildlife.

Many more images are available on our Facebook page. Many thanks go to everyone who came along to help out, brought apples, the band – The Glaaswalkers, and North Wales Wildlife Trust for lending us the pressing equipment.

Wild Weekend :: Come along and get involved!

September 29th, 2012 | Posted by llangollen garden in Events - (Comments Off on Wild Weekend :: Come along and get involved!)

On October 27th we will be taking part in the Keep Wales Tidy ‘Wild Weekend’ – We will be building some enhanced habitat zones. We will use material found on the site to create brash piles. Brash piles are great for wildlife and will help mark out some of the areas on site. If you like wildlife, or just want to help, this will be a great weekend to get involved!
