Fruit Crew

Listen

Fruit CrewCampbelltown Fruit Crew is a small group of trained volunteers who will harvest excess fruit from households in the Campbelltown area. The collected fruit then goes to organisations in the Council area who distribute it. In return for surplus fruit the Fruit Crew may provide basic fruit tree maintenance.

The project is about making use of existing sources of local fresh fruit that will otherwise end up as waste. Volunteers not only assist in the practicalities of harvesting, collecting and sharing of fruit, but also help with building friendships and supporting people to maintain their fruit trees.

Since commencing in late 2016 the Fruit Crew have collected and distributed over 500kg of fruit.

If you have excess fruit or would like information about becoming a Fruit Crew Volunteer, please contact Sophie Kavoukis, Community Development Officer - Neighbourhoods, on 8366 9303 or by email skavoukis@campbelltown.sa.gov.au
