Leeds Urban Harvest – Picking, preserving and distributing unwanted fruit in Leeds
Each year, thousands of fruit trees across the city go unpicked because their owners can’t harvest them or there is too much fruit to use at one time. At the same time, many people don’t eat as much fruit as they would like to because it is expensive or difficult to get hold of locally.
Urban harvest volunteers pick fruit, give the tree owners a share and distribute the rest to community groups in Leeds. Damaged fruits are turned into juice, preserves, jams and chutneys. Any money raised is put back into the project to help with running costs.
All Hallows is proud to be able to provide a home and support for Urban Harvest. Urban Harvest is also supported by the Permaculture Association. If you would like to know more about Leeds Urban Harvest visit their website.
