Brace yourselves, the season of zest is about to begin!
During the Winter months the Wollongong region will produce an abundance of citrus fruits. When Life Gives You Lemons is an exciting opportunity to tackle food waste by utilising these fruits through community engagement.
Over the months of May to August Hidden Harvest will be providing local donation and collection crates as well as pop up events for both growers and lovers of citrus. So whether you have a bunch of citrus you need to get off your hands, are keen to try some lemony goodness, or even have a go at some citrus making fun there will be plenty of ways to get involved!
Is your tree dropping too much citrus to handle? Not to worry, we have got the perfect way for you to put it to use. We will have locally placed donation crates for growers to donate. Donated fruits will available for any citrus lovers to take with any spares put to use in one of our zesty pop-up events.
Pressed for time to harvest your own fruits? Or don’t have the available option to transport them? Call upon our keen army of harvesters to lend a helping hand!
Don’t have a citrus tree available to you, but an absolute lover of these zesty numbers? Feel free to swing by one of our three locally placed donation and collection crates and pick yourself up a fruit or two, as well as citrus recipe to get those creative juices flowing.
