Grow Wild’s Pick and Preserve project aims to bring people together to harvest and preserve the seasonal glut of local fruit in local public spaces and private gardens and put it to good use!

You can get involved by joining in with picking and preserving workshops or telling us about a glut of fruit or vegetables that could be harvested.

Grow Wild’s new harvesting and pickling expert Penny (from Pickling Peckham) will lead the workshops – learn how to identify different varieties of fruit and nut trees. Pick what is ready for harvesting and then learn how to preserve the fruit – each participant taking away a sample of syrup, cordial or jam.

We can harvest people's garden gluts, picking them for their own use and taking what’s left to be preserved for the local community.

Contact Penny at Grow Wild and let us know about the fruit
