Southend Apple Day – Saturday 7th October

As some of our friends (South East Essex Organic Gardeners, Southend In Transition and Spiralseed) are supporting this, it would be rude of us to not help to publicise this event! Also, we support it because we like the idea of community orchards and bringing food production as close to home as possible…
