Join us for the first ever Cider Day! This Fall, ScrapDogs is teaming up with Georges River Land Trust to host a free event dedicated to showing appreciation for ScrapDogs customers and Land Trust members and volunteers. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to make free, fresh-pressed apple cider, spend some time with ScrapDogs and Georges River Land Trust staff and community members, and hear a presentation about all things conservation and public recreation at the Land Trust’s Annual Meeting. This event is free and open to the public!

And what's more, Cold Toes Tacos will be on-site to fuel us through this busy afternoon! Tacos will be available for purchase - so bring a blanket and picnic in the shade of the wonderful sculptures throughout the preserve.

PRESSING CIDER

 

Bring your own hand-picked apples to turn into cider using one of the unique styles of apple presses on-site. Don't have access to your own apples? No problem! ScrapDogs is leading a volunteer effort to collect apples from across the community to make a “Common Press” of cider available to all. To assist in this volunteer effort, follow this link:

** Participants interested in bringing home cider should bring their own containers to fill up at the event. **
