It can be discouraging to see extra fruit go to waste in your neighbourhood. We have spent a lot of time talking to people to find the root causes of this issue in Edmonton. We have found that fruit often goes to waste because people don’t know what to do with it all and feel overwhelmed. We have found that most people genuinely want it to go to use and would pick it if they had a place to take it!
We encourage you to chat with your neighbours who have fruit in their yard! If you don’t have your own fruit trees, I bet they would love to share. If you’ve all had your fill of fruit and still have more, bring it to our donation centre.
Backyard Harvest Donation Details Flyer
We have also created a pdf flyer that you can print and give to your neighbours or pop in their mailbox. A preview of what it looks like is below.
Click here to download the flyer. There are two flyers per page and you can print it in colour or black and white.
Trust us, your neighbours will be way happier donating fruit than cleaning up rotting fruit from their lawn!
