Saving the world one unloved piece of fruit at a time…
We’ve launched a Crowdfunder to save our Community Cider Hub! We’ve been making community-powered cider from London’s rescued, surplus fruit since 2016. The project has gone from strength to strength; we’ve even started to receive donations from commercial supply chains. What better way to use up waste apples & quench the thirst of London’s craft cider fans! Not many beverages can claim to be upskilling the local community and rescuing London’s neglected fruit.
But, unfortunately our innovative Community Cider Hub and its scrumptious products are now under threat as funding come to an end.
Please watch the short animation to find out more:
There are fabulous, exclusive rewards on offer to those who back the project: from one-off art prints of our fox, to cider gift boxes, guided foraging walks and signed cider books!
Feeling inspired to support us?
If that hasn’t convinced you, here are four ‘fox-tastic’ reasons to support our Crowdfunder:
- The fruit we use is 100% local, – no air miles! Collected from London’s gardens, parks & orchards.
- We’ve trained nearly 700 volunteers in harvesting, pressing and bottling, while raising awareness about food waste.
- Every part of the process, from crushing and pressing to bottling and labelling, is done by hand, using traditional methods. This makes it a unique, craft brew.
- We give back tools and training in fruit tree care to the community orchards who share their surplus with us, which helps to improve London’s green spaces.
We need to raise £17,500 to keep the Community Cider Hub running, and keep the apple juice flowing!
With your help, we can keep everything that makes the cider hub special: the volunteering opportunities, the fun, the community give-back and the unique taste of different London apples in every harvest.
Help us reach our aims of producing over 10,000 litres of juice and cider per year, and rescuing 40 tonnes of fruit by the end of 2019.
In return, you’ll get the warm glow of being part of an amazing project, where people and purpose come before profit. Of course, we’ll share some of the fruits of our labour with you at the end of it!
Every little donation will help us continue our food waste reduction mission. So, please go to https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/localfox to donate and bag some exciting rewards.
