Apple Picking and Pressing Volunteers Needed in Chesterfield 

The Transition Chesterfield Abundance Project team are gearing up for the apple picking season, with their annual project to harvest unwanted fruit and distribute it free of charge or press it into juice. So much fruit goes to waste and this is a great way to help people who either cannot pick their own fruit or have too much, and distribute it to homeless shelters, food banks etc. There are plenty of trees to harvest but the project team is in need of more pickers and places to distribute the fruit to. Ways to get involved:

  • Apple picking – as part of a team during September and October
  • Apple pressing – there will be a weekly pressing session at Inspire Community Garden
  • Nominate an organisation to receive apples (mainly cooking) e.g. school, community group
