Soon Abundance Manchester will start picking unwanted fruit and distributing it to people who need it. The final meeting before we start fruit picking will be at on WEDNESDAY 20TH AUGUST at KIM BY THE SEA cafe, 49 Old Birley Street (opposite Hulme Garden Centre).
At the meeting we will fill in people new to the project on how it will work and arrange the practicalities of fruit picking and distributing. Also we will be transforming old green t-shirts into DIY ‘Abundance Manchester’ t-shirts, so bring along a green t-shirt and something to use to write on it if you can!
The next meeting for Abundance Manchester will be Wednesday 13th August at 6pm at Kim by the Sea cafe, 49 Old Birley Street, Hulme. New people are very welcome! We will soon be starting to pick fruit so this is a very good time to come along to the meeting!
We will be meeting on 19th July at 11am at Battery Park cafe, 615 Wilbraham Road, Chorlton, to deliver leaflets to nearby houses. The leaflets will tell people about the project and ask for people with surplus/unwanted fruit on their trees to contact us.
We are also having an organising meeting on the same day at 3pm at Battery Park cafe.
All are welcome!
Our next meeting to plan the Abundance Project will be on Saturday 28th June at 4.30pm at the Ossery Road Allotments – see this map.
The meeting will be to discuss how the project will work, see what needs to be done to get the project started and see who is interested in doing which jobs. These will include contacting groups who may want free fruit, making and distributing leaflets, investigating funding, picking fruit, distributing fruit, eating fruit.
Please come along, and bring some friends too, the more the merrier!

Abundance is a project which aims to harvest surplus or unwanted fruit from gardens around Manchester and distribute it to local groups and communities who need it.
Do you have a fruit tree in your garden?
If you have a fruit tree in your garden and have surplus fruit, or are physically unable to pick the fruit, please get in touch! We will come and help harvest the fruit, and you will get the first share.
What will we do we with the fruit?
We will distribute the fruit to local groups that need it, e.g. refugee and asylum seeker groups. Please also get in touch if you want to receive fruit for your group or organisation. If we have too much of any one fruit we will make jams, pickles and preserves.
Do you want to help us?
Please also get in touch if you are interested in joining our group! We need people to help pick the fruit, preserve it, distribute it, and assist with the general running of our group.
