Queen Edith's Abundance

The community-led project to encourage more people in Cambridge to ‘swap and share’ fresh fruit and veg and long-life preserves. This started in 2014 as Rock Abundance because it had events at Rock Road Library and Rock Allotments in Cambridge, both of which are in the Queen Edith’s area.

Fresh Produce and Preserves Pop-Up, Swap-and-Share Stalls 2017

We will do three events this Summer, same as in 2016:

  • QE Abundance at the Library – Saturday 29 July, 10 am to 12 noon, outside Rock Road Library (events page)
  • QE Abundance in the garden – Sunday 20 August, 2 to 4 pm, Nightingale Garden, Nightingale Park, Nightingale Avenue (events page). This is during the regular garden volunteering session.
  • QE Abundance at the QE Community Action Morning, times to be agreed, Wulfstan Way Shops (events page). We will also have an RHS Greening Grey Britain stall, which we might combine in some way with the abundance stall.

Bring and swap home-grown or foraged fruit, vegetables, flowers, herbs and full-sugar long-life preserves –  make sure you’re on the circulation for our What’s On emails to find out about our abundance events. We’d love to have some more volunteers to help on the stalls on the day – it is fun, and you don’t need to have experience with a cash register – more a bucket with small change…
