Root ‘n’ Fruit is run by a group of volunteers who are seeking to make at least a small, positive difference to the area in which we live.

We are always looking for more volunteers and can offer a range of opportunities involving such activities as:

  • Administration – e.g. fundraising, marketing and distributing.
  • Cultivation – e.g. growing fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers.
  • Engineering – e.g. designing and building Blender Bikes, and solar-powered watering systems.
  • Innovation – e.g. vertical growing systems, hot-boxes and cubed fruits.
  • Construction – e.g. making paths, barbeques, bird-boxes, and bug hotels.

And of course, we can offer lots of:.

  • Digging, Watering and Weeding – real stress busters!

Previous knowledge, or experience, is not required.

We provide refreshments, equipment and training free of charge, and might be able to help with travel costs.

If you are interested in becoming one of our volunteers, please pop down for a chat on a Thursday, or Saturday, between 10am-12pm,

We are based at Trubshaw Cross Allotments, Mott Place, Middleport, Stoke-on-Trent ST6 3RH.
