Greening the Cross Community Celebration 27th NovemberI know it clashes with LEAF regular Saturday sessions but we are hoping some of you will pop along with a stall, there will also be stalls from Abundance NE, Sheffield Wildlife Trust, and others ….. hopefully a fun couple of hours.

Abundance stall

The Lord Mayor, Cllr Alan Law, will be joining the celebrations for the councils “Greening the Cross” project on 27th November at Mount Tabor Methodist Church, Wordsworth Avenue (bottom of Southey Hill).
As well as the Lord Mayor helping to plant the final two trees of a number of new ones being planted in and around Parson Cross area, there will be a number of stalls from local groups and projects. LEAF have, I believe, been invited to have a stall which I hope they will, but we are also planning an Abundance NE stall. If anyone wants to help, just let me know by sending an e mail to: freshexnick@live.co.uk
Hope to see you there!

Some of the First Fruits (apples from Meynell School grounds) these were taken to Early Days Centre at Palgrave Road.

Well we had another good morning of harvesting today with another couple of trees from a garden near Yewlands Technolgy College. A small but merry band (me, Angela and the two children to be precise) managed to collect just around 40-50llbs of cooking apples …. we’re hoping to go back later this week and finish the job by harvesting the eaters from the other tree.
All the apples are safely stored for the time being at Mount Tabor Methodist Church, and will soon be distributed on the estate through the usual sources.
Priority for next season is getting ourselves a fruit press so we can juice those apples that aren’t at their best anymore – and of course more of the jam and chutney making that has been discussed in the past. So if there’s any keen amateur jam and chutney makers out there – please get in touch. I’ve got the apples, and the jars, we just need you!
