Locally grown fruit turned into beer and wine at The Mill in Walthamstow

Locally grown fruit is being turned into jams, drinks, oils and vinegars, by residents attending E17 Fruit Bag events.

The Blackhorse Action Group (BAG) residents’ association set up the E17 Fruit Bag project back in April by getting residents at the Grange to plant different fruit trees in two areas of Walthamstow.

The ‘E17 Fruit Bag’ project aims to educate residents about planting and cultivation of fruit trees, as well as how to prepare and preserve their bounty for eating.

Now they are putting on free sessions for Walthamstow residents to make food and drinks out of locally grown fruit.
