Edible York grows fruit, vegetables and herbs in public places and supports others to do the same.Each autumn we pick apples and pears and distribute them to community cafes, food banks etc so it can be eaten by people who would not otherwise have fruit to eat.Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

Edible York does the following:
  • Gardens at three city-centre sites.
  • Supports community gardens throughout York with mentoring and donations of plants.
  • Organises events for gardeners to swap seeds & plants, make fruit juice and meet like-minded people and develop skills & knowledge.
  • Harvests fruit from people who have a surplus and passes it on to people without access to fruit. Tonnes of fruit enjoyed each autumn.
  • Plants fruit trees in the York Patchwork Orchard throughout the city.
Edible York aims to:
  • Increase gardening know-how for local residents.
  • Provide opportunties for residents to volunteer and enjoy gardening as a leisure activity.
  • Improve the quality of life in York, such as through healthier eating and improved natural environment.
