Abundance Tameside – join the big pick!


Join the growing movement of social scrumpers, collecting apples that would have otherwise have gone to waste from trees around Tameside. It’s fun, free and fruity!

The next session is: midday, Saturday 12th October 2013

MEET: 12 noon, Sat Oct 12th in car park in front of Ashton Train Station (Wellington Road, Ashton Under Lyne OL6 6JP)

WHAT TO EXPECT: The picking aims to be fun – meet new people, take home some apples (and maybe pears) and enjoy exploring parts of Tameside you never knew existed!

WHO: Everyone welcome – we will need some cars but can fit in people who arrive on public transport too. Bikes with trailers also welcomed.

COME PREPARED: We are picking mainly public trees so come prepared to wade through some brambles: old clothes, sturdy shoes, waterproofs and gloves are useful but not essential. We have all the harvesting equipment but a long handled cloth shopping bag is useful.

HOW LONG: We usually pick for a couple of hours depending on how many garden calls we get as we always try to call at these.

BOOKING: No need to book but it would be helpful if you could call Rachel on 07984 585375 or abundancetameside@gmail.com to let us know you’re coming and if you have a car etc.

GOT A TREE/SPOTTED A TREE?: If you have a tree you’d like us to pick or have spotted one you think might be suitable let us know: 07984 585375 or abundancetameside@gmail.com
