September is the time when the fruit trees on the estate start to ripen. What to do if you have a tree overloaded with fruit?
The Cricklewood food harvesters are a small group of volunteers that will harvest the fruit from the trees and distribute the produce to local schools, community projects and kitchens to prevent the fruit from going to waste.
Usually we use a telescopic tool with a hook to shake the tree and then catch the fruit when it falls into a tarpaulin.
