Harvest Share gets under way

Transition Stratford’s Harvest Share, which collects fruit that would otherwise go to waste and puts it to good use, has started its fourth season of harvesting.

The scheme, which is one of the largest of its type in the country, launched at the beginning of August, and collected a quarter of a tonne for fruit in its first two weeks. Harvest Share will run until late October, and during that time will be making regular deliveries of boxes of free fruit to local care homes and children’s groups, and processing other fruit into juice, jams and chutneys.

To take part – either through picking or helping to sort and distribute fruit, contact Harvest Share on 01789 298503 or e-mail admin@transitionstratford.com. Jam makers especially welcome!
