Join Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton at the orchard at McCauley School on Saturday, September 9th from 1 to 4 pm to press the seasons’ bounty of apples for cider making! We ask that you bring your apples along with cider carrying containers (i.e. jars, jugs, bottles, etc.) to take your prized liquid gold home. 1/4 of all cider created will be retained by OFRE for the bribing of volunteers for their handy efforts on orchard maintenance.
We are also in need of assistance from able bodies to help with orchard maintenance, project for the weekend will be determined closer to and is weather dependant (bench assembly, shelf assembly or siding installation). Volunteers will be garciously rewarded with fresh pressed cider and piping hot pizza for their efforts.
