Abundance Wimbledon springs into action between July and mid September, taking part in Fruit Picks within the Merton area, collecting unwanted fruit from private gardens, parks etc. This in turn is redirected to either local charities or to our team of jam/pie/cordial/chutney makers, all in a bid to reduce food waste and to help & bring the local community together.
Our Fruit Picks are divided into the following areas, each of which is looked after by an Area Coordinator:
-Martin Way Allotments
-Morden and Mitcham
We currently have a vacancy for an Area Coordinator for the Wimbledon Park Fruit Picks. This role involves coordinating the donations from private gardens, and arranging the picking and delivery of the fruit collected. This role would suit someone who plans to stay local to the area during the bulk of the summer period, who is flexible with their time, enjoys the outdoors, and who is adept at communicating with a variety of individuals and local organizations. Private fruit donations can often come in at short notice, so it is important to be able to act on these quickly to ensure we can fulfil our mission of collecting and redistributing as much local fruit as possible.
Our other Area Coordinators are very friendly and experienced, and will be very happy to pass on their fruit picking knowledge and wisdom with whoever takes this role on.
