To celebrate the autumn equinox we had a little celebration at the orchard on Friday 21st September 2018 with fairy lights & fire. We put up festoon lights and solar fairy lights around our elder tree, all lights supplied by Jabula Tents. We cooked up about 20 pizzas plus apple crumble & apple cake in the cob oven (from windfall apples we’ve collected in the orchard) plus veg curry (vegan / gluten free) on the fire.
We had some warm mulled cider supplied by St Ives Cider & a hot fire burning. Kids were loving it, running around the orchard, having tug of war fights, playing in the playground in the dark & of course eating pizza. We made almost £200 on food & donations so after expenses that’s £150 going into our bank account to help us pay for expenses like our yearly insurance / tools etc.
