Planting a Plum Tree in Abermarle Allotments!

This week, we planted a beautiful young plum tree in the Abermarle Allotments, who have been supporting our many food projects with beautiful fresh produce all summer. The tree will hopefully live in this gorgeous community orchard and bear fresh plums for generations to come! It is a belated leaving gift for CGF Founding Director, Adele.

Here’s a pic of our Co-Director Tracey and allotment leader Hils planting it. The allotment, which is located on the border of Withington and West Didsbury, is a wonderful place to meet green-minded people and to get involved with some growing. We’re always looking out for volunteers to help out at our Sunday sessions – tools and brews are provided! If you’d like to join, email sandra@crackinggoodfood.org

An End to ‘Veg-Up!’

We have reached the end of our 12-week pilot project Veg-Up! in Barton & Winton, Salford. Here’s our ‘produce guy’ and Project Manager Dave collecting some fresh veg from FareShare Greater Manchester in Vera, our new van!

Since the start of ‘Veg-Up! Salford, Dave has sourced and redistributed more than 2.5 tonnes of perfectly good food destined for food waste from Fareshare, along with lots of beautiful locally grown produce from allotments and growing schemes – AMAZING work Dave!

We’d also like to thank all of our incredible volunteers who have helped us to wash, sort and pack more than 900 veg bags since the start of July – you are absolute stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We are passionate about reducing food waste and supporting communities at high-risk of food insecurity and diet-related inequality to eat fresh and eat well. Keep your eyes peeled – we will be releasing an impact report to show you the full range of benefits this project has brought to Salford communities in the last 3 months.
