It feels a bit like Christmas when you’re a kid – the anticipation builds up for what seems like forever, the day itself comes, is glorious, then passes in the blink of an eye; the harvest season is almost over and if you’ve been in the thick-of-it, like we at Grow Sheffield have then you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Alas, its the time of year again when we say farewell to the harvest….but not without a mighty good send-off!

Around here we call that send off ABUNDANCE WEEK and its happening from November 22nd to December 1st (a bit longer than a week in fact…). There’ll be all kinds of frolicking and frivolity to be had from artful-browsing to apple-chopping, from cider-making to ceilidh-dancing!

You can keep up-to-date with whats going on by checking our events page between now and the end of December.

Pressing at the Archer Project

Early this morning Abundancers headed down for a quick juicing session at the Cathedral Archer Project, a centre for homeless and vulnerable people of Sheffield. We set up at the same time the kitchen at the project was cooking breakfast, ensuring lots of people were around to enjoy the freshly pressed goodness for a healthy and tasty start to the day. There were lots of keen volunteers (so keen we managed to break one of the screws in half on the scratter) and we got a good couple of presses out of some Norfolk Park apples, with all the juice being gulped down there and then. Possibly our fastest juice session yet, we were on our way home by 10am. Job done!
