Hello Manchester!

Hi Manchester!

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.
