National Apple Day
Tuesday 18 October 2016
Now in it's second year, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society celebrates National Apple Day with a special apple extravaganza for schoolchildren.
In 2015 pupils from Pickhill CE Primary School near Bedale were some of the first to join in the Society's celebrations, which forms part of the Society’s ongoing work to raise awareness amongst children about where their food comes from.
As well as learning about apple growing and the different varieties, children are given the chance to juice apples, taste them, cook with them and put their crafting skills to the test with activities using recycled materials.
The event aims to inspire and enthuse them about the wonderful range of apple varieties and their versatility and to show that there are so many more varieties than Granny Smiths!
If your school would like to take par in this FREE event, please email Di Kirkman or call 01423 546283.
Places are limited to a maximum of 30 pupils per school.
