Abundance 2016 Season
Abundance is a volunteer based organisation which rescues, shares, cooks and processes fruit across Sheffield from going to waste. Tree owners donate the fruit they don’t want, volunteers take some and we share the best fruit with the community (e.g. food banks, lunch clubs, support centres)
The rest we cook or juice together in the community.
This 2016 season we are working with 3 partner organisations offering weekly Abundance Training/Drop In Sessions, where people can gain life and job skills and meet friendly faces.
Certificates for participation with skills learned available.
