This is a trip to a working farm in Kent which grows the berries for Ribena, and we are gleaning the 80 acres to make a delicious blackcurrant soft drink.

The fruit is going to be turned into a special fizzy drink with Hackney based soda manufacturers Square Root.

It’s an outdoor activity, so please bring appropriate clothing for the weather forecast.

Bring a packed lunch and enough snacks and water for the day.

Spaces are limited so please book early. We will confirm your place via email.
