Shillingford Organics Farm school: Sunset Apples

Last Saturday, we went to Shillingford Organics Farm School for the second time. Baba1 is enrolled for a Six sessions course to discover few things about the soil and harvest few wonderful organic vegetables.

We first visited the School Farm earlier in September and we were very lucky to meet Fatma who gives the course. She is so fabulous and calm, that Baba1 felt well instantly. The Farm school has a little dedicated space with a shade, a polytunnel and the Hens house, surrounded by fieds and apple trees.

Last week session was all about Sunset Apples: harvesting, cleaning, chopping and pressing. The children had first to harvest the apples and use a ladder. Baba1 was so excited about the ladder!

They had to make a difference between the apples that would be eaten and those more suitable for juicing. Quite impressive to look at those little kids select and do a great job.

We took then all the apples and washed them. It was very funny and refreshing to stay near them. Anyone looking for a rejuvenation, that is the thing to do. I am always astonished to see the effect of children laughers on adults.

Then we chopped the apples and we pressed them.

I can tell you that it was the best Apple Juice I had since a long time!
