What is Abundance Wimbledon?
There are lots of fruit trees in the Wimbledon area, but much of the fruit falls on the ground and is wasted. Abundance helps people to access this fruit and pick it.
Or main objective is that the fruit gets used. If at the same time, we can help people who might be struggling with the cost of fresh food, share skills, reduce waste and have fun doing all of this, so much the better!
Abundance works because lots of people do little bits to help. Here are the different ways you could help:
Over the last year, we have localised fruit picking and distributing - so there are now teams of people working together in Raynes Park, Morden, Wimbledon Park and Wimbledon Town Centre & Wimbledon Village. We are looking to localise even further and set up teams in Merton Park/Dundonald and Colliers Wood.
Let us know if you'd like to help in some way by emailing or would like to receive email updates of what is happening, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
