Leeds Urban Harvest
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.
As part of the project we aim to raise awareness of the great abundance of local tasty and healthy food that is available for everyone and for free.
