Introducing the Ashhurst Produce Share Shelf.

Fruit trees and gardens are now in full production.  The inevitable excess seems too good to waste.  

We now have a solution. The Ashhurst Library is hosting the Ashhurst Produce Share Shelf for gardeners to share any excess fruit or produce.  This sharing shelf is attached to the garage in the Library garden, just behind the picket fence and sheltered from the weather.

As part of its ongoing commitment to building resilience and engaging the community, RECAP members have created this facility and will oversee its use.  Please make use of the shelved with these requests in mind:

Share your excess
Reduce waste
Only take what you can use
Clean up rotting produce
Keep it tidy

Any excessive amounts of produce will be shared with the Ashhurst Foodbank.  Waste produce will be fed to the worm farm.  The site will also be available to drop off and share named seedlings for other gardeners.  Local Ashhurst Facebook pages will be used to advertise excess produce.
