Bust your glut

Gooseberries for cooking Supermarkets often have the same stuff available all year round, but fruit and veg are in fact very seasonal, as you will know all too well if you grow your own (successfully!). Here are some ideas on making the best of your glut - with some jam jars from Freegle - or passing on your surplus to family, friends or your neighbours on Freegle.

Old but still working

My childhood bedside lamp that I'm still using What have you got that's old but still working? I'm writing about stuff you've got at home or elsewhere that has lasted a long time. It might be a wooden spoon that your gran used, a treasured biscuit tin from your childhood or a train set you kept. What have you got that has lasted a long time - let me know please.

Alston Gala goers enjoy re-use in action with Freegle

Judith-Ann shows her upcycled shopping bag Freegle joined in the fun at Alston Gala last Saturday running a stall to help people hand on unwanted items to others and demonstrate upcycling in practice. At least one hundred visitors dropped by, with many picking up a freebie from donated items, others took away a free sturdy carrier bag and learnt how to make decorations.

Rhubarb rhubarb rhubarb

Casie Reynolds and Lilly Graham picking free Freegle rhubarb Freegle is for food too! If you've got a glut of fruit, courgettes or kale, why not offer it to family, friends or on Freegle. Get the kids involved - they'll learn where food comes from - and yes: some of it does grow on trees!
