Hi,

I own the Urban Farm Store in Portland and we do an annual cider pressing event. I'd like to do it as a fundraiser for HOS (at least in part) and could use the help of members as volunteers for the event. It's October 12/13 at our store (the address is below) from about 10-6 Saturday to 11-5 Sunday. I'd post all of this myself on the forum, but even though I'm a lifetime member, I have no record of how to get on the forum or other membership information. Can you help with that as well?

Thanks,
Robert

When? Saturday and Sunday October 12/13 from about 10AM-6PM Saturday and 11AM-5PM Sunday


What? Our 3rd annual charity cider pressing! We will be using a quality electric and hand-cranked press and will have over 2000 lbs of Newtown Pippins freshly harvested in Hood River on hand. We also encourage you to bring your own apples, either from home or your neighborhood. We will provide the plastic jugs and lids. All are welcome


Where? Urban Farm Store (rain or shine) in our parking lot. There will be a tent if it's raining. Our address is 2100 SE Belmont St Portland, Oregon 97239


How Much? Who Benefits? We ask a voluntary donation of $10 per gallon (your apples or ours). This money will go primarily to the Home Orchard Society, with a portion going to the family of Pete Porath (a recently departed employee of the store). A small portion goes to pay for equipment, supplies and staffing. Volunteers will get a free gallon of cider and a warm, fuzzy feeling!


Anything Else? Volunteers are asked to write Robert at robert@urbanfarmstore.com with your availability. He will let you know when your shift will be by Wednesday. We request shifts be at least 2 hours and may involve instructing guests on press usage, cleanup, and answering apple questions.
