From pears to kiwis, many types of fruit grow in London, where this blog started.
Often wasted these days, because modernity takes us away from the edible garden, they are a source of simple and healthy sustenance and pleasures accessible to many.
The blog presents recipes, tips and stories on growing, eating and sharing local fruit, as well as educational initiatives aimed at exploring those wonders.
It is also an opportunity to raise awareness of the sustainable development benefits of such activities.
