October Trip to Silverwood Nature Center

October 30th, 2017

Monday we took a trip to Silverwood Nature Center, a beautiful place to experience apple pressing. Residents learned how to make apple cider and made some cute clay ornaments and pines for fall. A shout out to Sam and Galby for their time and dedication to making this a terrific afternoon for us all. Residents learned that there are over 2,500 varieties of apples in the US and over 7,000 in the world. The U of M is creating an encyclopedia set which will consist of all apple varieties ever created. I was surprised that there was only one apple that is native to the US , which is the crab apple. We also learned that 1 apple had just as much fiber as 2 servings of Metamucil. We voted on eating the apple!!! At the end of the class we enjoyed our homemade pressed apple cider…YUM!!
