Crushing apples

The Golden Bear Aware Program now has an apple press, recently donated to them.

Bear Aware volunteers Monica Bartha and Dave Whyte learn to use the Apple Press recently donated to the Golden Bear Aware Program.  Apple Press days will be offered at upcoming Farmers Markets later in September.

To book your 40 minute timeslot contact Sadie: or 250-290-1222.  A non-perishable food item donation is requested to use the press, as Bear Aware is collecting 20,000 calorie baskets for the Golden Food Bank, the amount of calories needed by a bear each day in the fall.  Strip your fruit trees and berry bushes to feed families, not bears.  A fed bear is a dead bear.
