This year we will be pressing Gravenstein apples and serving free apple juice tastings to the public.
Come volunteer with us! Shifts are Saturday, Aug. 9, 10am – 2p and 2 – 6pm and Sunday, Aug. 10, 10am – 2pm and 2 – 6pm (incl. takedown) Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and what event(s) you wish to volunteer.
The 41st Gravenstein Apple Fair will be held on August 9th and 10th under the shade of majestic oaks in Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol and Slow Food Russian River will be there again with our booth promoting the Gravenstein apple and all the other delicious apples in the area.
For the first time we will be pressing fresh apple juice at the Gravenstein Apple Fair at Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol (Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 9 and 10) and at three farmers markets, Sebastopol Farmers’ Market (Sunday, Aug. 17), Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market, at the Wells Fargo Center (Saturday, Aug. 23), and the Point Reyes Farmers Market, at Toby’s Feed Barn (Saturday, Aug. 30).
We hope you can join us – whether you are a Slow Food member or not – in this joyful work, sharing the fun of watching people’s reactions when they taste real, fresh pressed Gravenstein apple juice, and getting to work together with other people who are passionate about the apples and the apple orchards in the North Bay. Help us as we include small children in the process and see their excitement. Getting people excited about seasonal local apples is one of the ways we make folks support our apple farmers.
Please contact email@example.com with your contact information and what event(s) you wish to volunteer. We will be running two presses at the Gravenstein Apple Fair and need about 14 people each shift, each day!
