Kersal Moor, famous for its Chartist political rallies and racecourse, is also a site of biological and conservation importance, and next Sunday this will be celebrated with a special Fruits of the Earth Festival.

Kersal Moor is certainly coming back to life with events being put on whenever the occasion suits. Now, following the successful summer `beacon lighting' and `plaque opening' (see here), there's a celebration of the Moor's ecology next Sunday.

While Kersal Moor has been feted as a site of historical importance – Chartist meetings, racecourse, Engels etc – next weekend there's a celebration of it as a Site of Biological Importance (SBI) and as a conservation site.

The Fruits of the Earth Festival will see people from the community planting English apple trees, a visit from Barn Owl Bill exhibiting his majestic eagle owl and small burrowing owls, a honey stall with free wild flowers seeds donated by the Co-op to help the bees, Irish and Eastern European Klezmer music from the Yiddlesticks, the Gaia café selling home-made fruit cake and pies, and lots of stalls and activities.

"The event will focus on the importance of our natural inheritance with all things that grow, are really good for us and we need to preserve" says Alice Searle of Friends of Kersal Moor "The central event will be the planting of fruit trees by those members of the public agreeing to be a 'Tree Guardian'. Choose your tree and the Salford rangers will plant with you. What an honour!"

To get to the Fest just follow the flower path at the edge of the Moor…
