Wildsight Apple Picking events

Help manage animal attractants

In order to help reduce animal attractants such as fruit, Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook is hosting a number of community Apple Capture Pick and Press events.

At these events, the first of which was held on September 5, 2020, community members, including kids, gather to pick fruit trees in Kimberley

The next picking day is Saturday, September 19 with another on Saturday, October 3. Beginning at 10 a.m. meet at the Kimberley Community Garden to receive maps to guide you to where you will be picking. From 10:30 to 2:30, pick those apples. Head back to the Community Garden at 2:30 p.m. to drop your apples off.

On Sunday, October 4, it’s pressing day. Meet at the Community Garden on Rotary Drive beginning at 10 a.m. to press the apples to make juice or apple sauce.

You can register online at https://wildsight.ca/events/kimberley-apple-pick-and-press-2020/

There will also be picking events in Cranbrook on Saturday, September 26, with the pressing event on September 27. Meet at the Cranbrook Public Produce Garden, 10 a.m. on Saturday and same time on Sunday.
