Urban Veg, Northfield Ecocentre, Growing Birmingham and Martineau Gardens have got together to bring URBAN HARVEST back to life and to try and stop the rot.
The aim is that volunteers, work groups, kids and other gangs will visit wild and cultivated apple trees in the West Midlands to bring in a massive harvest of fruit which would have otherwise been wasted.
Produce named varieties as fruit and a blended juice will then be sold back to the people of Birmingham at a fair price (or for free if you donate – see below).
The project is a huge undertaking and will need equipment and coordination to make it work. As such Northfield Ecocentre have put together a crowd funding bid to raise £10k to get this project going. Click here if you wish to donate to their Crowd Fund.
People who donate get a variety of awards from certificates, to apple trees, free juice, discounted Urban Veg courses and a free place on our Juice and Cider making course on the 27th October
