For the Love of Lilac Blossom Drive

pink-lilacs8Spring has arrived, bringing with it the promise of warmer rain, blossoming trees, the birds and the bees. Here at WildCraft, we’re looking forward to fresh flavors, new ciders, and flowers in bloom.

Thank you again to everyone who contributed to the success of the WildCraft Community Apple Drive. The February Community Cider Release highlighted the crowd-sourced cider we created by working together – produced with you, from local resources, and in turn raising money to give back to local conservation groups. We loved it.

You’ve inspired us to keep going.  This spring and early summer, from March through May, we’re asking you to help us collect the blossoming Lilac flowers that will be used to create a floral-infused, community-produced For the Love of Lilac Cider.

Gather up the abundant flowers from your yardspurple-lilac-flowers-christina-rollo & neighborhood and bring them to our designated drop-off location. The WildCraft family will be ready to thank you with complimentary WildCraft cider or fresh juice for your donation.

Your contributions to the WildCraft Community Lilac Drive will culminate in a For the Love of Lilac Cider, anticipated to release in Summer 2016. To continue with the spirit of community support and stewardship, a portion of the sales from the Love of Lilac Cider will be donated to support youth outdoor education programs.

Like us on Facebook and stay tuned to our website & event calendar to stay up to date on the latest information.

Your contributions can help us create a WildCraft cider for everyone, by everyone.

Your community, your resources, your CiderHouse.
