Any Ripe Pears and Apples Going to Waste?
Get in touch with Abundance London and they will help with the harvesting
Abundance London – the local fruit harvesting project that works with local schools and restaurants to help deal with fruit gluts - has been busily harvesting damsons and plums over the past few weeks and is now moving on to apples and pears.
If you know of a fruit tree going to waste, or if your apple or pear tree is giving you too much fruit and you want some help harvesting… let them know.
They are working towards the big Abundance Fruit Day on Saturday 16th October at St Michael’s and All Angels, Chiswick. So far five local schools have signed up to help map, pick and eat any local fruit gluts, with more on board every day. There will be juice pressing, harvest goods and stalls, crafts, fruit games, plant swap, jam-making workshops, etc. More details to follow.
So if your pears, apples, plums, quinces, nuts, etc are falling ungathered to the ground, get in touch and they will help to harvest them: firstname.lastname@example.org
And make a note in your diary now for the: Abundance Fruit Day, Saturday October 16th 2010, 11-3pm, Chiswick
