I f you or someone you know have trees loaded with apples and need something to do with them, join us at our apple press days at the Fernie Community Ecogarden on Sept ember 21st,28th and October 5th between 3 and 7pm. Bring your local apples and use the fruit press to turn them into apple juice. Fruit must be picked from the tree as windfall fruit may contain bacteria.
Make sure you bring Fernie apples and containers to put the juice into. This event is by advance registration only. The cost is $10 for a 40 minute time slot. Come by the Wildsight Office, 891 2nd Avenue to register. For more information feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unsecured garbage and apple trees are the root causes of bear human conflict in Fernie. When attractants are removed, bears will move on resulting in a safer community and preventing the needless destruction of bears.
