Abundance is a project to harvest the seasonal glut of local fruit like apples, pear and plums. Each year hundreds of fruit trees go unpicked either because people don’t notice them, may not be physically able to harvest them or there are just too many fruits at one time.
Abundance is a team of volunteers who help harvest city fruit and redistribute the surplus to the community on a non-profit basis – to community cafes, nurseries, and individuals. It was started by a team of enthusiastic volunteers in Sheffield. Abundance Nottingham was launched in September 2009 and has now completed two autumn seasons!
