Food, farming and environment

It was great to see over 60 people turn out for our food, farming and environment event organised jointly with Stokesley Deanery Environment Network. We heard from Howard Petch CBE former Principal of Bishop Burton College and local famers Robert Campbell MBE former Chairman of the national organisation LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) and David Hugill.

If you weren’t able to make it, then listen to the podcast created by Richard Bradshaw for Leven Online.

Apple pressing equipment

In the autumn lots of apples can go to waste as people don’t have the time to use them. Over the past few years, Moor Sustainable CIC have run a number of apple pressing events in the area and also loaned out the equipment. The Directors of Moor Sustainable have decided to wind up the company at the end of March due to a change in focus of the Directors. Therefore, the apple pressing equipment needed a new home. Thanks to a donation, CASaV will now own the equipment and will be able to run an apple pressing event in the autumn and also lend out the equipment through a virtual Share Shed that the Waste group are setting up.
