Leeds Urban Harvest is a voluntary run project that aims to collect and distribute varieties of soft fruits that grow unharvested around our city on trees and bushes in both public and private spaces.
Fruit is distributed to groups, volunteers and the local community. Damaged fruits are turned into juice, preserves, jams and chutneys. Any money raised is put back into the project to help with running costs. We are also creating a detailed reference map of Leeds with location and tree information for future harvests, accessible to anyone.
Some of you may already be aware of the free taster workshops that are taking place at the Leeds Central Library, as a part of a month long green-arts event called 'Out of my Tree'. A programme can be obtained from our website under the logo below.
As the Copenhagen climate negotiations fast approach us and a general election looms, it's important that climate change is high up the political agenda and that MPs hear the voices of the many people across Leeds who are busy campaigning against climate change, and that the message is pushed up the political system from activists on the ground.
