Have you ever had a glut of fruit? Have you ever wondered how on earth you’ll find time to pick it all? Have you ever asked yourself: Now who can I give some plums to… ?
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a team of volunteers to pick your surplus fruit and re-home it, either turning it into chutneys and jams for sale, or maybe donating it to local charities.
I’m interested in setting up a ‘fruit-sharing’ scheme in Teignmouth, under the umbrella of TET but, first things first, I need to establish whether those of you with fruit trees (anything from one tree upwards) would be interested in donating all or some of your autumn crop in future years.
What’s in it for you? Well, your fruit would be harvested at the right time, avoiding those piles of mushy apples that tend to accumulate and fester, saving you time and making your garden rather neater than it might otherwise be. And, more importantly, the fruit would actually get used, rather than wasted.
Please contact me through this website or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you would be interested in a scheme of this sort in future years.
