Back in Autumn 2009 MapRA member Michael Stuart organised volunteers to pick apples for owners who were unable to pick their own, and shared the proceeds between the owner, volunteers, and local schools. With Brent’s help and MapRA support, he set up pruning training in the surrounding area.
Our fruit harvesting group annually pick over 500 kg of plums, pears and apples. After some for owners and pickers we have donated the fruits to places such as Ashford Place, Anson school and Pakistan Community Centre. Get in touch for ways to participate.
