It was a lovely fall day to celebrate the apple with our neighbors! We pulled out our refurbished cider press and made delicious cider for all. We also had a rope swing into a leaf and hay pile, a corn pit, and many animals to pet. The region’s apple harvest was greatly diminished this year because the trees woke up early from the warm winter and were then hit by a frost. Fortunately, neighbors brought apples and we were able to get apples from our food waste reduction partnership with the Capital City Rescue Mission down the street.
