We will be bottling tomatoes from the greenhouse and juicing apples, pears and plums harvested around the park during a session in the depot kitchen from 2pm on 24th August 2011.
Dozens of tomatoes are ripening at the greenhouse and we will be learning techniques for preserving them so they can be used during the winter months.
The London Orchard Project, which helped us gather fruit from gardens around the park last Saturday, will come along to juice and bottle fruit during the session too.
Everyone and all ages are welcome to take part, learn new skills and enjoy freshly squeezed juice.
This weekend we would like to invite everyone to view paintings and drawings of Colombian artist Mauricio Paez. Mauricio’s exhibition, Ode to the Nature, will be open in the Roundhouse on Saturday 13th from morning hours until 3pm with private viewing taking place afterwards and will re-open on Sunday 14th for all day. If you are interested in Mauricio’s artwork, please visit his website for more information: http://www.mauriciopaez.com/
