Colman Neighborhood’s Community Harvest kickoff is tomorrow night and we’re inviting anyone in the CD who is interested in in fruit harvesting/gleaning or using local food as a way to build community to stop by. Tomorrow will be less a meeting and more casual conversations with some wine and snacks.
Tuesday, June 22, 7 pm.
733 25th Ave S (cross is Dearborn).
Last year we harvested over 2000 pounds of fruit, mainly plums, that would have otherwise gone to waste and got them distributed to our neighbors, local churches, and St. Mary’s Food Bank.
I’ve got some brochures from Solid Ground on tips for how to put together your own neighborhood harvest, and we’ve certainly got some opinions (some differing!) on what might work and doesn’t seem to for small neighborhood efforts that we could share.
And certainly, we could always use more volunteers for harvesting esp. in August!
