Growing with Nature: Apple Pressing, Networking & More!

Date: Wednesday, September 13, 2023

When: 4:30pm - 8:00pm

Price: Free


While Green Minds is ending in August, we're pleased to say Growing with Nature will continue (with Green Minds partners at Plymouth City Council and The Data Place staying involved)!

Food Plymouth, Plymouth City Council, The Data Place and Plymouth Octopus Project are hosting a free networking event for individuals and community groups across Plymouth.

This will be another opportunity to learn about projects across Plymouth as we network, share skills and support each other to grow with nature.

When and where?

This event will take place at Keyham Green Places,163 Renown St, Keyham, Plymouth PL2 2DT.

Join us from 4:30pm for networking, with the official start at 5pm. The event will end by 7:30pm, with optional networking until 8pm. Feel free to drop-in whenever you are able to come along, and stay as long or as little as you like.

What's happening?

Join us and get involved with:

  • A tour of the garden at Keyham Green Places
  • Make your own apple juice with the All Ways Apples apple press
  • Share updates, asks and offers, on your growing & rewilding projects
  • Learn about exciting ways to get involved with Devon Wildlife Trust, Plymouth & South Devon Community Forest, and the new project following on from Green Minds called 'Green Community Hubs'
  • See and add your project to the Growing with Nature map
  • Share inspirational summer snacks to try and take away
  • Plant swap

What to bring?

Refreshments will be provided, but if you're a keen grower please do bring some home grown snacks to share like salad, fruit leathers and chutneys. Remember to bring along any plants that you would like to swap too!

If you're keen to take some freshly pressed apple juice home, please bring along your own clean bottle, and if you have any apples to press, bring them along!

Most of the session will be held outdoors and under a marquee, but we'll also have access to a small room indoors. Most areas are accessible, but there may be slopes and bumpy ground in places. Please come with suitable clothing for the weather.

Spaces are limited, so please continue to book a space if you can make it on this Eventbrite link.
