Black Creek Community Centre hosts AppleFest

Are you wondering what to do with your bounty of fruit this year?

Are you wondering what to do with your bounty of fruit this year?

If you don’t have the time or energy to turn all your apples, pears or quinces into pies or jams, why not consider turning them into delicious juice?

This Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., come out to the Black Creek Community Centre for AppleFest. Pressing Matter and their mobile juicer on site where they will press, filter, pasteurize and box all of your apple, pear and quince fruit into juice on the spot.

In a box, the juice will last for over a year on the shelf and once opened, it will keep for a few weeks in the refrigerator! What better way to store your harvest? Non-pasteurized juicing is available upon request, and will be done prior to the pasteurized juice.

You can also donate your fruit to the Black Creek Community Association (BCCA), the non-profit member-driven organization that is behind all the great things that happen at the Black Creek Community Centre.

The BCCA will send out volunteers to pick fruit that you don’t intend to harvest (or you can bring it in yourself on Oct. 5) and we will process and juice the fruit which we can then sell as a fundraiser.  Of course, all of this is made possible thanks to Pressing Matter, who have donated their time to make and box juice for non-profit organizations.

Pre-registration is required for this event.  Please call 250-337-5190 to book your juicing time, or to request some help with fruit harvesting for your donation.

The Black Creek Community Centre is located at 2001 Black Creek Rd. All proceeds from this event will go to the BCCA to maintain the facility and continue to build recreational, social and educational programs and special events.
