Back garden fruit pickers branch out

A group that harvests fruit in the back gardens of south Edinburgh is taking its work to the Meadows this weekend in a bid to persuade others to join them.

For the last two years, Abundance Edinburgh has sent volunteers out to pick the plums, apples, raspberries and other fruit growing in private back gardens and public areas.

And as part of its expansion, it will set up a demonstration of how fruit is crushed on Saturday in the hope others take up the cause.
