Dear Helen,

I think those are all marvellous ideas - the recipes, the seasonal pickles, and the taste of home. I definitely think that the pickles would also be quite special, since they would be different with various community groups, according to different demographics!



Hey Gwenno,

Thank you for your kind words! Marketing is definitely something to consider, and I think it would be amazing to market locally in farmers' market stalls in addition to targeted social media and local stores.. I think our targets are foodies, restaurants, artisan food stalls, and young professionals. What are you thoughts?

The preserves will feature where the surplus come from along with some words from the vendors/ farmers. The package would include short story cards, designed by local artists, featuring updates from the local community group, interesting stories about the members, and stories of the farms/ vendors.



Dear Jody,

I would love to chat with you! It is great to know that other people are also passionate about the same things.

Rubies in the Rubble is a great initiative, and probably one of the earliest surplus food enterprise! I absolutely adore them and had worked with them in a project.

My email is; feel free to send me an email!

Best regards,
