MONDAY 13TH OCTOBER
Learn to make jam with foraged berries from our local hedgerows – including rowan berries, hawthorn berries, sloes, blackberries, elderberries and apples. We will also learn to make sloe gin and rhubarb schnapps to give as fun Christmas gifts.
As the workshop will be hosted in Transition member Sara’s home, spaces are limited so please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and to book a place.
The workshop is free but we are asking for a £3 donation for ingredients. If you would like to take some jam and gin/schnapps away, please do bring a clean jam jar, a small (quarter) bottle of gin or vodka, and an empty kilner jar.
Sunday 19th October, 12 – 4pm
Highgate Newtown Community Centre
Bertram Street N19 5DQ
Join us for an afternoon of fun to celebrate the arrival of autumn! Chickens will keep us company as we dig out the potatoes sown in the spring, we will host a variety of workshops for children to make crafts and take home, as well as a chance to learn about bees and talk to gardener Anita Gracie about how to best prepare for the new season. Feel free to bring along your apples for some freshly pressed apple juice as well as your seeds for swapping.
We will also have a shared pot-luck lunch in the garden so please bring along along something home-made or home grown to share with others.
Note: The event is free – there will be drinks & cakes and activities indoors in case of rain.
