2018 for The Hidden Orchard is in full swing!
This evening we had an excellent apple harvest with 4 first time volunteers, led by Ellen and Sandy.
We spent an hour picking big green apples from a huge tree in Brown Hill, leaving plenty of apples that were out of our reach for the neighbourhood Rosellas..
Can you spot the friends that we disturbed when we arrived? 🙂
We managed to collect around 65kgs of apples, with the majority being delivered to Food is Free Laneway.
We also cleaned up all the dropped and damaged fruit which is destined for the Ballarat Wildlife Park in the morning.
Tomorrow morning we are running a jam making workshop and there’s still a few places so you can find out more info or register here.
