Watch Steele Lane students gain life skills while pressing apples and learning about local food with Slow Food Russian River. In this episode of CropMobster TV Nicky Bobby shines a light on Slow Food’s work to bring school children and teachers out to press apples at their Sebastopol Community Apple Press.
Slow Food Russian River operates the Sebastopol Community Apple Press at the Luther Burbank Gold Ridge Experiment Farm in Sebastopol during apple season – through October. Use of the presses – there are two – is a free community service from SFRR.
Please donate to Slow Food Russian River Gravenstein Apple Project to support schools such as Steele Lane in West Santa Rosa working with our community apple presses.
Slow Food Russian River is grateful to CropMobster TV and Nicky Bobby, for recording our story of positive impact, to Luther Burbank’s Gold Ridge Experiment Farm, for hosting the Community Apple Press, to Dutton Ranch Corp. for donating the organic apples, to Sunshine Rotary to support the kid’s transportation to the farm, and to Steele Lane Elementary teachers for making this experience happen and for being such a dedicated and talented team of educators.
