Sheffield Green Drinks: Fruit Juicing with Abundance

Date, Time & Location Tues 15 Sep 2009, 5pm - 7.30pm Sharrow Old Junior School, Southview Road, S7 1DB
Details Abundance is a project to harvest the seasonal glut of local fruit like apple, pear and plum. Each year hundreds of fruit trees go unpicked either because people don’t notice them, may not be physically able to harvest them or there are just too many fruits at one time. Abundance is a team of volunteers who have been helping harvest city fruit and redistributing the surplus to the community on a non-profit basis - to community cafes, nurseries, Surestarts and individuals. Abundance also juices tonnes of fruit and make jams, pickles and preserves. Fruit juicing will be led by Daniele Rinaudo, an Abundance volunteer. A hand powered press, electrical juicer and other essential equipment will be available to use. Juicing will be done outside, but undercover - so whatever the weather we'll be juicing! They have a supply of apples, but if you can it would fantastic to bring a bag of locally harvested apples, pears, plums etc. to juice.
