Féile na nùll – The Apple Festival
Féile na nÚll, the community Apple Festival is held annually in Cloughjordan Ecovillage around the 20~25th September (depending on where the weekend falls). Though the community of Cloughjordan Ecovillage and the wider town host this event, Cultivate offerings feature throughout the programme of talks and workshops.
Themed around a celebration of apples and community, the programme includes a market and food stalls, kids activities, music and arts, and tours of the Ecovillage. Be sure to enter your apple-recipe creations in the Apple Bake contest along with bringing your own apples for pressing ( and containers for the juice!) with The Night Orchard.
The Night Orchard produce apple juice exclusively from apples gathered from various small orchards in the local area, and offer apple pressing days during the season.
This is one of hundreds of events being held across Europe celebrating the European Day for Sustainable Communities. https://communitiesforfuture.org/sustainable-communities/
