Harvest Share 2013 – help save good local food from going to waste

vegetablesDo you have an abundance of fruit or vegetables in your garden or allotment?

Need help with harvesting?

  • Help picking apples, plums, marrows, pears, tomatoes, or anything edible
  • Help making jams, chutneys, jellies, cordials?

Transition Stourbridge (a local environmental group) started the Harvest Share project in 2010 to help save good local food from going to waste.

We made jams, chutneys, jellies, cordials and over 1,000 litres of fresh pressed apple and pear juice in 2011, which was a good year – as this year is promising to be!
