Do you have apples in your garden that you’re not planning to use? Why not give them to a good cause?

The Triangle Community Garden is holding a series of apple collections to supplement the garden’s own apples harvest and produce a new batch of delicious bottled Triangle Community Garden Apple Juice.

Apples for donation need to be in the following condition: ripe (ie they come off the tree with a gentle twist of the stem), un-bruised (one bruised apple can cause the whole load to go off), freshly-picked - preferably the same day, cookers or eaters (either are fine), but no crab apples please). Please deliver them in cardboard boxes, not plastic bags, thank you.

Collection dates:

Collection 1: Friday 9th Sept to Monday 11th Sept

Collection 2: Friday 16th Sept to Monday 19th Sept

Collection 3: Friday 23rd Sept to Monday 26th Sept

Drop-off points: 

74 Strathmore Ave, Hitchin SG5 1ST or

23 Priory Way, Hitchin  SG4 9BJ.

If you pick and donate 10 kilos or more of usable apples, you may claim a free bottle of Triangle Garden apple juice. Please leave your name and contact details tucked inside each box of donated apples. 

If you have a lot of apple trees in your garden, why not invite friends and family over for an apple picking session in aid of this great cause. If you have a large load of picked apples but no transport, please contact Vicky on 07989 321663 - we may be able to collect from you within the dates above.
