Autumn Apple Drive

Date: Sat 10 April

As part of Local Food Month, and to celebrate the autumn harvest, join Local Food Wanaka for a weekend of harvest activities at the beautiful Rippon Hall, Wanaka.

This annual event is a showcase of making use of and reducing food waste by preserving surplus produce. Local Food Wānaka will be hosting a communal chutney making session with Lorne from Pirate Pickles, as well as fresh juice pressing.

Bring your surplus fruit, a sharp knife, a chopping board, small jars and 1-2 litre bottles for juice and join the communal activities. The Apple Drive is a great opportunity to meet others and do something together as a community.
