The Hidden Orchard harvests fruit from backyards or public areas and shares it amongst the site owners, pickers and local charities. The charities distribute the fruit free to people within the community, or use it in meal programs.
The Hidden Orchard is a project of Ballarat Permaculture Guild. We thank our friends at Growing Abundance (Castlemaine) for inspiration and support.
Fruit harvested by The Hidden Orchard might otherwise have gone to waste. Now, it is being gratefully received by pickers & community members. Where needed, we also help look after the trees, with Winter pruning and general care. Sounds like ‘win-win’, huh! 🙂
