Scrumping – do you know a lonely fruit tree?

Have you seen fruit or nuts lying around in yours, maybe the neighbours garden or in some public space? Apples, pears, plums etc just rotting on the ground while they could be gathered up and made into some delicacies by those who need them? Don’t have time to pick them up or there are just too many in your garden. Get in contact with us. We will gather up the fruit and leave you a fair share to enjoy:)

We don’t know yet what exactly we’ll do with them. Share your ideas. Maybe distribute the bounty among charitable projects or schools and nurseries promoting healthy eating?

Why waste if it can taste? Other succesfull Scrumping projects: London Sheffield Manchester Toronto Powell River Fruit Tree Project Portland Why waste if it can taste?

  5. Isn’t fruit picking hungry work?! It’s a miracle that my cherries made it back home here from http://www.rentacherrytree.co.uk really. Cost has worked out to £3 per Kg, available to whoever wants some. If you can’t make it to me, I can deliver around Westcliff and Central Southend. Unlike shop sold cherries, I picked these ripe and full of antioxidants. So c’mon all you foodies, these need eating up!
