Hi all
I've missed most of the planning meetings this summer so not sure I'm up to date on the immediate plans for harvesting and other related activities. Shall we resume our fortnightly meetings? I'm free this weekend if anyone else is up for it. If not, next weekend works fine too.

Hi Niki,
As it happens,I did nudge Jamie and Steve a little last week and they
decided for a Dalston/Peoples harvesting day on Sunday 4th of
Sept,meetup at Passing Clouds 12midday!
So its all in the making,forgive us not including it on the mailing
list.They use Facebook for their activities.I think Jamie put up a
piece on Hackney Harvest about it as well.

Hope to see You there,

Tom

Hi everyone

Sorry, been a little out of the loop with what feels like a thousand
things going on at the moment.

Yes harvesting this Sunday. Need to work out what trees we're going to
go for - any thoughts? Not sure about apple trees near Passing Clouds.
We could take a small crew up to one of our trees up in Stokey?
Steve's keen to do cider but I'm doubtful we'll be able to get enough
for that. I'm still unclear about the Wick Woods situation and haven't
had a chance to catch up with Russell about that yet.

I've spotted a couple of great looking crab apples in a school in De
Beauvoir. I think the schools go back next week so we may be able to
go and harvest soon, will get in touch with them.

I'm catching up with Carina on Tuesday to discuss dates

Oh and I'm here this weekend and away next and the weekend after that.
I'm thinking some mid-week harvests might be a good option.

We have a big cooker to go for on Sunday...

Hi there
We should be around sunday afternoon. If not then any evening next
week would be fine.
We have tonnes of apples!
Please do come and take as many as you want/ are able to collect.
Thanks
Guy



TYPE_OF_TREE: Apple Tree

AGE_OF_TREE: Over 50 years

CULTIVAR: Cooking apples

LOCATION_OF_TREE: E8

PUBLIC_OR_PRIVATE: Back Garden

COMMENTS: We have a huge apple tree in our back garden. It produces
too many apples for us to harvest alone. It is situated in our
neighbours back garden and the tree half overhangs our garden too.
Feel free to come and help yourselves to apples if you like! best
wishes

Hi,
I got another event on at the same time(11AM onwards) as the intended
Peoples Kitchen on Sunday!
And its the same type of,fruitharvesting!

I will try to get over to Peoples Kitchen a bit later in the day,and
perhaps bring some?
But its a bit of a trek with heavy fruit on a bike.

But what have ever stopped a nutter to do things,eh!

And I think its a good idea to have the Stoke Newington Apple trees as
a "plan B" if we can't find any in Dalston/Hoxton/Shoreditch
area,pending their ripedness?

Also,Guy's offer on his cooking apples in E8 sounds interesting;

With best Regards,

Tom

It all sounds good. See you on Sunday, we can talk about mid-week harvests then.
All best
