Georges River Land Trust will host a two-day apple festival on Thursday, September 27, and Saturday, September 29, at Langlais Sculpture Preserve in Cushing. Admission is free and all are welcome. On Thursday from 5 to 6:30 p.m., John Bunker will present “Saving Our Apple Heritage.” Bunker founded the Maine mail-order company Fedco Trees 30 years ago. Every year Fedco Trees takes a selection of rare heirloom apples and attempts to make them less rare. Bunker has scouted and harvested cuttings of “lost” heirloom apple trees all over New England. When he finds one, he grafts it onto rootstocks at the Fedco nursery and begins selling the trees a few years later. Bunker estimates that over the past 30 years he has saved anywhere from 80 to 100 varieties from oblivion. On Saturday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., Waite Maclin, also known as Pastor Chuck and for his organic apple products, will offer his annual apple cider pressing. Maclin currently works with the Cushing Community School and its Green Team and is turning his cider press to create Langlais Cider. Fall-oriented activities suited for children will also be offered Saturday morning.
