Because of the heatwave, the mirabelles matured earlier than expected and therefore this event has been cancelled.
Nature is the gift that just keeps on giving and that is never more the case than in August when plum season gets into full swing.
Hopeful harvesters can pick their own delicious mirabelles for free at a Luxembourg orchard at this event organised by conservation group Bee Together. Visitors are encouraged to make a day of it by bringing a picnic to enjoy in the peaceful countryside setting.
Bee Together is a community group aimed at raising awareness about and helping improve the habitats and food sources of pollinating insects. Participation in this plum picking event is by registration only. The precise location of the orchard will be issued upon registration. In the event of bad weather, the event will be rescheduled to 26 August.
