Two worthy local initiatives

Abundance Oxford is a community not-for-profit urban fruit harvesting,
preserving and redistribution project. Volunteers harvest unwanted fruit for free and redistribute it to homeless charities, surestart children’s centres and harvest festivals, always ensuring that the owners of the harvested land (which could be your garden!) get first pick of the crop.
The group also run juicing, making and baking workshops, and can be found at
OxGrow on Hogacre Common Eco Park from 1.30 to 4pm most Sundays. If you’d
like to help, either as a volunteer or a provider if you are lucky enough to
have a surplus of fruit or other garden produce, you can find Abundance
Oxford online at http://www.facebook.com/groups/abundanceoxford or
http://www.abundanceoxford.wordpress.com or contact them by email at
abundanceharvestsoxford{at}gmail.com or phone 07708 776392.

The Seasonal and Ethical Supplies Initiative (SESI) supplies food and
household products in Oxford, always seeking to minimise packaging. Many of
the products they supply are organic, fairtrade or locally sourced, and they
are always non-exploitative and reasonably priced. You can find SESI at the East Oxford, Wolvercote and South Oxford farmer’s markets, at the SESI Depot in the Methodist Church Annexe, Jeune Street, Oxford (Monday-Wednesday, 10am to 2pm) or online at http://www.sesi.org.uk . To contact SESI phone 01865 790337
or email inbox{at}sesi.org.uk .
