Abundance is back for the harvest season of 2012. Abundance Nottingham is a volunteer run group which collects excess fruit, mainly apples and pears, and distribute it to local community groups. This is the year to join in, the harvest is upon us and we need as many volunteers as possible. It is a great way of getting out and about, meeting some different people, climbing some trees (if you want to), learning about fruit and generally having scrumping fun. Also, there are usually as many apples as you can possibly and cider for volunteers when its ready!
