Our first weekend picking session will be on Sunday 2nd September at 2pm. To take part in fruit picking, distributing or orchard activities please sign up to our email list by emailing abundancemanchester@yahoo.co.uk, that’s how we let people know what’s going on and how to get involved.

A small group also meets regularly to plan activities, discuss progress, and distribute tasks. This is usually a core group of about 6 people, and we are always keen to get a few more people involved. Next meeting 7pm, Wed 29th August. Our meetings are open to anyone who’d like to get more involved or just wants to find out more about what we’re doing.  The meeting will be at the Work for Change offices in Hulme, M15 5RF, in the Yellowbricks (same building as Kim by the Sea).  Facing Kims, head to your left to the end of that building and turn right around the corner onto Geoge Parr Road. The entrance to the offices is a red door on your right about halfway along the building. If no-one’s there to let you in, buzz the buzzer. We’ll probably have a drink round the corner afterwards at Kims.

All Welcome!
