Is there an admission fee?
There is no admission fee, but the orchard has us pay for one of their containers that you put your picked fruit in once we get there.
Should I bring my own container for my apples?
The orchard requires us to purchase one of their containers before going out into the field. The GSO will pay for a large container that we can split after we get back from the field. If you want to bring a large number home, you are welcome to purchase your own container from Shaw Orchards before going out into the field.
Can I bring guests who are not Loyola students to this event?
Absolutely! Students are welcome to bring guests / family members / children / friends to this event. Just no pets in the field!
Where can I find the group upon my arrival to the farm?
We will be meeting at the entrance to the farm market at 1pm. Watch for someone wearing Loyola gear! We will wait for 10 minutes, but we will go to the field by 1:10 to respect everyone's time.
I'm not sure I can go. Do I have to RSVP?
No, you can just show up, but providing your contact info allows us to send you an update if there are any unexpected changes in plan.
What if the weather is a little iffy?
If it is rainy, we will reschedule to the following Saturday, October 15th and update our website. We will write to everyone who RSVPed to confirm the 10/15 date if we must reschedule.
Please email the GSO at email@example.com.
