Spare fruit and vegetables picking season is now under way and Transition Chesterfield’s Abundance volunteers will be going out to harvest unwanted fruit and distribute it free of charge. Tree owners, volunteers and local communities get some and what can’t be eaten gets juiced. Nothing is wasted.

This year apples and other fruit will be donated to Chesterfield food bank and Grassmoor’s ”Big Local” community centre. Plus other venues.

We have plenty of trees to harvest but need more pickers and people with cars who can help distribute the fruit. You don’t need to climb trees or ladders as much of the picking is from the ground.

So, if you can spare some time in Sep/Oct even if it’s just once or twice, please get in touch with Alison or Polly via email: or by phone:
Polly on 07779 111818 or Alison on 07776 448486
