Boys get to core of harvesting

Redditch Editorial 23rd Oct, 2014 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016   0

THE CHANCE to make their own apple juice was on offer for 70 boys as part of a discovery of harvest practices around the world.

Pupils at Skilts School worked with Fay Yeng from Yum Tum Club using a traditional apple press from Transition Town Redditch and apples donated by Biddle’s.

As well as sampling the juice and different varities of the fruit, they also had a kite flying session and will go on to learn about harvest from across the globe.

Fay said: “They enjoyed learning about traditional methods of making juice and how much effort goes into it to get what we might take for granted.

“The practical side of it really helped them focus, they were working out the mechanics of the press which really got them engaged.”
