This year’s harvest is shaping up to be a bumper one, and about a month early. Tough for tree owners as many are away and we can’t enrol our usual school teams to help deal with the gluts.
So we are putting out a call for
- people who want to pick
- people who want to eat
- people who want to make preserves (and make a few for us for our Apple Day)
- any charities, food banks, sheltered housing etc who can use the produce
- Any restaurants or businesses who (in return for a donation) would like to use this wonderful, local, usually organic harvest
Get in touch with us asap for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have the following crops, all easily accessible in Chiswick:
- Damsons in Staveley Road. Lovely dark purple, flawless fruit, perfect for jams, gins, pickles, compotes (if you like ‘em tart). To scoop up by the bucketload from the grass.
- Pears in Barrowgate Road. Huge, luscious heritage pears.
- Apples in Queen Annes Grove. Arthur Turner and Katja varieties (red eaters and green cookers).
- A whole grove of 40 apple trees in White City.
