How? Set up an ‘Abundance’ group in your area
Open event to help get you started
Abundance Manchester is a small voluntary project that harvests surplus and unwanted fruit and veg from gardens, allotments and public places and distributes it to groups that can make good use of it, like homeless hostels and refugee projects. We’ve been running for 2 years in South Manchester, covering Chorlton, Didsbury, Withington, Fallowfield & Whalley Range. Jointly with other Abundance groups in the country, we’re one of the 3 projects shortlisted for the ‘Best Grassroots Project’ award at the Observer’s Ethical Awards 2010.
We can only cover a tiny fraction of Greater Manchester, and we want YOU to take advantage of the ‘abundance’ of fresh produce that’s going to waste where you live. And we’d like to help you.
On Saturday June 12th Abundance Manchester is holding a short open event in Manchester city centre where groups and individuals can find out just how easy it is to start and run their own Abundance project, or something like it. We’ll give you a ‘toolkit’ with all the info you need to know, plus the chance to connect with others in your area who are interested too.
Starts 11am with a short presentation, followed by discussion, networking and one to one advice.
Places are limited so please let us know if you’re coming by Monday 7th June. To book or for more info -
