*** We have successfully crowd-funded to expand our Abundance work in 2016 - please help us harvest - tell your friends! (See us on SpaceHive York) ***
We rely on local knowledge from all the lovely people around York to let us know if there is fruit going to waste near you - particularly if you would like to help us pick /collect/distribute it.
- Do you have a fruit tree in your garden that is so prolific you need to offload some of the crop?
- Do you have a neighbour who would like help managing their fruit trees?
- Is there a fruit tree in a public place near to you that is neglected each autumn?
And if you know of great community groups, events, or projects that can use some of this abundant harvest then definately chat to them and let us know.
Do you know of
- a charity
- surestart centre
- community cooking project
- local event
... or other project that would like to receive donations of fresh fruit in the Autumn? Let us know!
Abundance has its own dedicated Facebook page to keep volunteers updated about picking dates. eg Village pick at Bishopthorpe Sun morning 9th Oct, then juicing in the afternoon.
We now have Apple HQ in Salisbury Road, close to the Leeman Road Orchard and near Minster Vets. This is a large locked container where Abundance volunteers take the fruit until distribution or juicing.
