Thanks for your interest in harvesting and making use of neglected fruit from the Ballarat area. Although we’ve only been going a few weeks, The Hidden Orchard has already distributed hundreds of kilos of fruit to local organisations – and our harvest volunteers have taken home their share to eat, juice, stew or otherwise enjoy!
People love the idea of taking a resource that might otherwise be wasted and sharing it in the community. Volunteers have enjoyed the social interaction of the harvest, taking home their share of the bounty and the knowledge that just a couple of hours together can result in serious quantities of fruit going to local families who might not have it otherwise.

Hi guys, we are happy to help when we can. We’ll be moving to the area later in the year so I’ll keep in touch via Facebook.
Cheers and great job
Thanks Cat! It’s quite exciting how the project has taken off – we’ve had so many people contact us about their trees… it’s great! BY next Autumn, we’ll have ourselves fully sorted … it’s a bit ‘seat of the pants’ right now, so some future help will definitely be gratefully received. Between now & then, we’ll see you in cyberspace! 🙂 Steve
I would like to help by being a fruit picker
