Damson Harvesting

SLACC’s Abundance group is organising another damson harvest this year. Come along and join our harvest in the Lyth Valley, in conjunction with the Westmorland Damson Association – www.lythdamsons.org.uk.

yum!

Help us, and the Damson Association, to pick the fruit from their old orchards, and take some home at the end of the day.

Its a fun community activity, the fruit is delicious fresh off the tree, and there’s plenty you can do with the damsons – eat them, bake them, make a pie, preserve them, make wine, flavour gin or vodka, use them as a natural dye for clothing or wool, or freeze them and bring them along to our traditional fruit preserve workshop on 12th October!

Harvest dates depend on when the fruit has ripened, usually at the start of September. Register your interest and we’ll contact you with dates closer to the time. Please also let us know if you have a car and are willing to give others a lift. Email tsl.abundance[at]googlemail.com or phone Ruth on 07851  719 444
