First Abundance pick of 2012!

The first pick of 2012 was in the Lenton area of Nottingham. We had seven eager volunteers and spent a few hours visiting tree we already knew about and finding some new ones.

We managed to pick a bag of plums, two bags of pears and a bag of apples. This has been sorted and is making its way to two community groups within Nottingham. The plums would not keep so they have been made into 9 jars of jam for distribution.

Thanks to everyone who came along to this pick and for the people who let us pick the fruit from their trees. While not as abundant as last year (the same trees yeilded over 80kgs of apples) this fruit would all have gone to waste if it had been left unpicked.

Please come along to our next pick which will be in Forest Fields (meet at The Forest tram stop at 11am) on Sunday 30th Septemeber.
