Concrete Jungle is one of those amazing groups in Atlanta that see an idea for good and then act on it. Concrete Jungle goes around harvesting fruits and nuts from trees which would otherwise go to waste. and then give the bounty to local food banks, etc. They just started in 2009 but they’re already accomplishing great things like already donating almost 17,ooo lbs of harvested food to the poor and hungry. Well, winter is approaching and now it’s time for Concrete Jungle’s Ciderfest. This is where they take apples and pears that could not be donated and turn them into cider! It’s great fun for the whole family. They’ll be holding Ciderfest on October 11th from 11:30 am until ?
And if you’re really adventurous, some folks are going to meet that morning at 10:00 am at the Inman Park MARTA station and will walk the Beltline to Ciderfest. Here’s a link for that
