You're invited to the Burnley Fruit Squad Launch! We are excited to launch the Burnley Fruit Squad this Sunday, the 13th of August from 10 am - 12 pm at Burnley Backyard with a super informative free workshop on fruit trees and harvesting. The Burnley Fruit Squad is a new and exciting community fruit-harvesting pilot project supported by the Richmond Commnuity Learning Centre, Richmond Community Garden Group and the City of Yarra. The squad will be based on a group of volunteers who will harvest excess fruit from households in Richmond and share with the community. Our aim is to reduce food wastage in Burnley, to enable skill sharing between householders and volunteers, and foster social connections in the community. We are currently seeking interest from members of the community who would be interested in joining the Burnley Fruit Squad! Come along to Burnley Backyard at 10 am this Sunday and find out more!
