Together we can stop unwanted and unused fruit from going to waste

​Every year, thousands of trees and shrubs across Stoke-on-Trent bare fruit and the vast majority of this fruit goes unwanted and unused in gardens, parks and orchards across the City. 

Fallen From the Tree is a City wide project which aims to combat fruit waste by collecting unwanted, unused and discarded fruit and redistributing it to residents within the community for them to use

If you have any surplus fruit from trees or shrubs (no matter how big or small) which you would like to donate to our project, please get in touch as we would love to collect it.​


Alternatively, if you are a member of the community who would like to use the surplus fruit we collect, then please register your details with us and we will inform you of your local collection point when the fruit has been picked and harvested. ​


We are always looking for volunteers who can help us to pick and harvest the fruit from private gardens, open spaces and parks. All of the fruit which has been collected will then be used for a range of community events.


Our fruit picking experiences are a great opportunity to meet like minded people in your community and to keep the fruit which you pick. You will be provided with all of the equipment and your very own recipe pack and tote bags to take away with you at the end of the event.
