Auckland Story for 11 April 2012 - Community Fruit Harvesting

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:37 pm on 11 April 2012

Community Fruit Harvesting was started by Di Celliers on the North Shore of Auckland when she noticed fruit rotting on the ground in backyards in her community. So, with a group of friends as volunteers, she set out to pick fruit around her neighbourhood. A year later, the project has delivered over 2000 kg of fresh fruit and numerous jars of preserves and marmalades to groups such as Auckland's City Mission, ensuring others less fortunate can enjoy fresh fruit.
