Apples n’ Pears in Perfect Condition!

We are sometimes offered windfall apples or pears, which is fine if they haven’t been heavily bruised when falling. We would much rather come and view your tree and help you pick it or pick it ourselves then we can be assured the quality of the fruit for our juice, jam and chutney making.

We can of course accept windfalls if they are in tip top condition! Please comment here, or email us on wenabundance@gmail.com if you have any fruit to offer us!

There’s not only football in Old Trafford…but plenty of apples too! — Abundance Manchester

Volunteering Opportunities – Pear Picking this Saturday 3rd October

DSC01088

Dear all

We have nearly come to the end of our apple picking for this season, however we still have a lot of pears to pick! We are picking once again at Northfields allotments this Saturday 3rd October at 10.30am. If you are interested in coming along please arrive by 10.30am sharp at the entrance gates by the bus stop on Northfields Avenue. We will supply all the equipment just come suitably dressed for picking on a muddy allotment! If you are unfamiliar with Northfields Allotments they are run by ‘Pathways’ so this is the signage you will see and they are surrounded by green metal fencing along part of Mattock Lane at the Lido Junction end and down Northfields Avenue.

The pear trees are easy to get to so will suit small children as the allotment is also secure. Some lifting is involved, and of course the picking of pears from the tree!

Hope to see you there.
