From pears to figs and kiwis, many fruits grow in London, where this blog started.
Often wasted these days, because modernity has taken us away from the edible garden, they are a source of simple and healthy sustenance and satisfaction accessible to many.
The blog presents stories, recipes and tips gathered across Europe on growing, eating and sharing local fruit, as well as educational initiatives aimed at raising awareness of the sustainable development benefits of such activities.
