An event to celebrate the autumn harvest will take place Saturday at B.C.’s oldest working nut farm in West Kelowna.
Live music, heritage demonstrations and activities for the whole family will be offered at Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park.
“Stroll the century-old nut orchard and gather walnuts, chestnuts, buartnuts and more,” said the RDCO.
The free event runs Oct. 7 between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., with a break in demonstrations between noon and 12:30 p.m.
- guided walks with park interpreters
- watercolour painting with supplies provided
- wood turning demonstrations
- live musical performances
- gathering walnuts, chestnuts and more
Park visitors are welcome to purchase nuts from the booth by cash or e-transfer or pick their own with buckets provided for in-park use only.
Visitors are asked to pick from the ground only— and not climb trees. Nuts fall to the ground when they are ripe enough to gather.
