Fruit wanted – can you help us to find some?

Our accidental jam factory is open again. We have lots of lovely jam jars lined up waiting to fill, so all we need now is something to put in them. We have a few things on the go ourselves, but we can always make use of extra fruit or vegetables.

Last year you gave us your surplus raspberries, loganberries, crab apples, gooseberries, plums and marrows – and we made jam out of all of them. Can any of you help us again this year?

Please let us know if you have any surplus fruit or veg that you’d be willing to share with Growing Newsome, or if you can recommend a good spot for foraging.

We’ll be looking for ingredients between now and October, so whenever you spot something going spare please let us know. We can come and collect things from you if you need us to.

We can make use of any fresh local produce at our many events this autumn – not just to make jam, but for savoury things and for sharing too.

We’ll also share the recipes so that everyone else can give it a go. Anything considered!

Please get in touch here if you can help, or email
