If you signed up to use the Sebastopol Community Apple Press: You will soon be receiving an email confirmation of your reservation of the Sebastopol Community Apple Press. We’re looking forward to helping you press your apples. If you need to cancel your reservation, please do so by using the link in the email confirmation.
Use of the press is free, but donations from people like you are critical to keeping the only free community press in the United States in operation. Donations also enable us to bring disadvantaged school kids to the press. Watch this video Nick Papadopolos of CropMobster made of one such visit. To donate, click here.
If you signed up to volunteer at the Apple Press: Volunteering with the Apple Core can take many forms, from helping the public press their apples or tinkering with our equipment, to providing information to the public about our local apple culture; from keeping track of reservations and sign-ups, to applying for grants and other forms of fundraising; from taking photos and videos, to writing blog posts and news bulletins. To volunteer for more activities, complete and submit the information requested on the right side of this page about our team, the Apple Core.
