Cider Day + Annual Meeting
October 3 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We’re partnering with ScrapDogs Community Compost for a collaborative public event at the Langlais Sculpture Preserve in Cushing. The event is a fall celebration to show appreciation for Land Trust members and volunteers and ScrapDogs customers, and invite all those who are interested in learning more about our organizations to come and hear the latest news from each.
Cider Pressing (& Tacos!) 12 – 3:30 pm
Beginning at noon, Davis Saltonstall and Tessa Rosenberry of ScrapDogs Community Compost will be on-site to assist community members in pressing apples into cider. You can bring your own apples, or ScrapDogs is leading a volunteer effort to collect apples from across the community to make a “Common Press” of cider available to all. ScrapDogs is coordinating the effort where you can donate apples.
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 while you view the wonderful sculptures throughout the preserve.
Annual Meeting 3:30 – 5 pm
In our Annual Meeting we’ll share a year of success along with our plans for the future of conservation and public access in the Georges River watershed, plus introduce a new Board member.
Our keynote speakers, ScrapDogs founders Davis and Tessa, will share their story of launching the business in 2018 and discuss why waste is such an important issue concerning conservationists, including how composting can help tackle the problem of emissions from food waste. Focusing on soil health can add another beneficial climate lens for those concerned about local carbon cycles and future agricultural policies and practices.
Everyone is encouraged to participate – members, donors, volunteers, and members of the public who would like to find out more about what these two organizations do and how to get involved.
