REGISTER INTEREST IN ABUNDANCE FOR 2011

Abundance is now taking a well-earned rest from all the tree scaling, fruit picking, and redistribution from autumn 2010.

Along with the trees, we are hibernating!

However, seasons being seasons we will start up again from the end of summer 2011.

To remind, we are 100% volunteer led and volunteer run and rely on community support and input to keep going.

So if avoiding fruit waste, promoting healthy eating and getting involved with the local community sound like your thing, we would love to hear from you – get in touch with us now to register your interest…

Here are some of the ways you can get involved with Abundance from end summer/autumn 2011:

– collect fruit
– scout out new trees
– scout out new distribution points who could use the fruit
– run a chutney or jam-making workshop
– give us stuff! Jam jars, recipe books, tarpaulins, apple pickers…. bike grease, the works….
– help out with publicity

To register your interest:

1. Email abundancearea4@gmail.com and put ‘volunteer’ in the subject heading
2. Tell us what you’d like to get involved in

That’s it! We’ll email you back closer to the time.

  1. What happens with the fruit? Do we take it home or does it get donated somewhere?

  2. Heya, handed a leaflet about Abundance Nottingham today by Tim at Ecoworks. I’d love to volunteer evenings or weekends so please could you send me any info I’d need as last post on here from Jan 2011.
    Cheers,
    Phil Swift

    • Hi Phil, Thanks for the interest. Yep – We need to update the website – I’ll try and do that tonight.
      I’ve added you to the abundance email list so hopefully you will get the information.
      Cheers,
      Matt
