Neighbors helping neighbors.

 

Like the community within which it exists, Banner Community Guild (BCG) is constantly changing and evolving. In a new century with ever-evolving technology and tools, BCG strives to maintain a firm grasp on its traditions, history and past successes, while adapting to rapid change. An organization is only as strong as its membership, however, and it is our hope that we will be able to listen intently to the myriad of new voices in our community to nurture an organization that is inviting to all.

 

 
Our historic hall and grounds got some love recently in preparation for the Tibetan Monks’ visit, but much more needs to be done! Stop by the hall and see the progress! Come help us sand and paint! How would YOU beautify the hall?!

Bring your fruit

Using our soon-to-be-launched calendaring app, book 30min time slots on the juicer. Bring your apples, pears and/or quince to our facility and save yourself the headache of having to clean up afterward! We’ll do it all.


Press it into juice

Load the washer and watch your fruit ascend the escalator, fall through the grinder and into the press. Once it’s full, turn off the grinder and on the press! Collect the juice and head on your way. We’ll take care of the pomace!


Take home half

Please bring your own vessels for transporting your fresh juice, but know that we will also have vessels for sale here. Whatever you don’t take home will stay here with us and be fermented and stored as hard cider, fermented and distilled to be blended with fresh juice and aged for our version of Pommeau, or fermented, distilled and aged into apple brandy… all for our members only. Any member contributing juice will receive an allowance of their contribution in their choice of fresh juice, hard cider, pommeau or apple brandy. One of many great benefits of membership.
