Opportunity to Help with Chestefield’s Abundance Project


There are hundreds of fruit trees in Chesterfield where fruit goes to waste. Abundance Chesterfield is a project to share this natural wealth. Volunteers harvest the fruit and distribute it free of charge. Tree owners and volunteers get some, food banks and communities get some, all free of charge. What can’t be eaten gets juiced. Nothing is wasted. Apples and other fruit will be donated to Chesterfield food bank and Gussie’s Kitchen, while surplus apples will be pressed into juice at the Brampton Food Festival in October (See events section of this newsletter) and at Inspire Community Garden, a community garden project.

If you can help harvest, store, transport or distribute fruit or know of an organisation that would like to receive some donated fruit, please contact Alison or Polly: abundance@transitionchesterfield.org.uk
