HARVEST SHARE IMPROVes WELL BEING

The Harvest Share project saves unwanted fruit from going to waste: volunteers get together to have fun and pick a variety of fruits (mostly apples!) from gardens and orchards, before distributing them to places around the community. Surplus fruit goes to making fine juices and preserves for sale. Our volunteers report a greater sense of well-being by helping to make the project a success.

Last year, Harvest Share was a huge success. We’ll let the figures tell you:

-          22 volunteers, 8 regular volunteers
