Windhill Foraging Group

Thursday 8th September sees the inaugural outing of the Windhill Foraging group.

Members of the community who attend Windhill Community Centre have banded together to walk the local area with the intention of collecting local produce, much of which is generally overlooked and left to rot.

Blackberries and apples are first up on the agenda with the eventual objective of baking pies and making jams. The group have a specialist in making jams and preserves in their number and some of the ‘spoils’ will no doubt be sold to help others.

Many householders don’t collect apples, pears or plums and are being approached to allow other community members to utilise their fruit harvest.
