2020 Update: We are monitoring the COVID situation closely. At this time, we will not be taking apples until September to ensure the safety of our team of staff and volunteers.
If your apples are ripe before then, you can try reaching out to our community partners at Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton to see if they have any volunteers who would be interested.
We will send out details in a few weeks via our Fresh from the Press email newsletter on our plans for September and October!
Help us rescue the unused fruit in your community through the Backyard Harvest!
There is an abundance of fruit in our city that goes to waste every year.

Community Cider Charity Program & the Backyard Harvest Club
Through our Community Cider Charity Program, any extra fruit will be put towards making other ciders throughout the year that will also be paired with a local non-profit. All fruit donors will be entered into our Backyard Harvest Club.
A portion of profits from all our ciders are donated to non-profit organizations through our Community Cider Charity Program.
Here are the other ways we are working hard to impact our community:
Help us tackle food waste and support our local food systems and community organizations!
