It’s a celebration of locally and sustainably produced food and drink And we’d love your help! Apple Day is now in it’s 12th year and has gone from strength to strength. See photos here from last year's event.
 

We now welcome around 7,000 people coming together at Stanmer Park, in a celebration of all things appley - there are tours of the orchards, music, entertainment for kids, local craft stalls, and lots of yummy food and drink, including apple juice and cider produced on site!

Brighton Permaculture Trust is a charity that promotes greener lifestyles and sustainability by balancing the environments, individual’s, and the community needs. Apple Day is our biggest event of the year and we want it to be the most community centric eco-friendly event in Sussex. Sound good to you?

Volunteering at Apple Day

There are volunteering opportunities in the run up to the event, just before the big day, on the day AND the day after. What volunteers get

• Events experience
• Plenty of team work experience for those who want it
• Helping support sustainable products and promote the value of eating locally
• Food and celebration!
• Access to amazing group of people with diverse skills
• It’s also a great way to learn about eco-friendly lifestyle skills 

Come and help out on the day

We need between 50 and 100 volunteers on the 23rd September itself, and we make sure to look after them. Lunch is provided after the morning shift, and there is a celebratory dinner provided after the evening shift, and for those volunteers and staff who have lasted the whole day. No previous experience is necessary and new volunteers are always welcome. The only requirement is enthusiasm for our charity and it's aims and the Apple Day values of local sustainability and learning, and commitment to make this event happen!

Please click on the registration link for more information about shift times and areas where we need help.

Volunteer scheduling will take place in August so sign up today!

Regular volunteers for Brighton Permaculture Trust (fondly known as BPT) also get reduced cost on the courses we run, so if you would like to learn how to look after your own fruit trees, build a building from natural materials, grow mushrooms, or like the idea of sustainable design which can be applied to all parts of life then volunteer with us!
