Fruit Picking for Abundance
Helping to pick fruit for the community that would otherwise go to waste
The Abundance Project aims to stop waste by helping people harvest their fruit, then helping either re-distribute it to worthy food bank projects, or helping to run workshops so the public can learn the wonderful art of home preserving of fruit.
We will once again be meeting Lucy Corcoran of Abundance Sheffield at the Broomhall meeting place (Holberry Gardens meets Havelock St) to harvest apples from a community orchard.
Please bring a head torch with you and a bag if you would like to take some of the fruits of your labour home.
*** In 2017 Abundance rescued over 3 tonnes of fruit, shared 1.3 tonnes with 70 community groups worked with 530 volunteers, 3 community training partnerships and with other partners across Sheffield's communities.***
