Grand Finale in photos

building cider press
The celebration began with a fun cider press building workshop, led by Fruit Share volunteer Darby Jones.

Everyone really enjoyed building their own cider presses to take home. And they looked great!
guide to prairie fruit
Between the cider press workshop and the potluck, everyone had the opportunity to give input on a book which will be released in the spring (all about prairie/backyard fruit!) – written by our very own Getty Stewart.

We even got a sneak preview of pages of the book!

And of course, we had to thank our sponsors and partners 🙂
got fruit?
We also sectioned off an area for our own lovely marketing materials.
recipe station
The recipe swap station was located right beside the buffet. The food looked so delicious, however, that we forgot to photograph it! But it was every bit as good as it looked.
After we had all filled our bellies, I gave a little presentation to demonstrate how everyone's contributions led to an incredibly successful harvesting season. All in all, our Grand Finale was a great time!
