The Unity Barn Raisers organization is heading up a gleaning initiative focused on reducing food waste, supporting hunger relief, providing a service to farmers and enhancing overall community health. Farmers and gardeners, let us know when you have extra, left over, or second-quality crops you would like to donate. We can arrange a time to drop off, can facilitate pick-up, or even provide trained and supervised volunteers to come harvest from your fields. Donations are tax-deductible!

Volunteers, join our “glean team” as a volunteer and be contacted as gleaning needs arise. Support is needed to harvest, transport, wash and pack produce, and perform quality control. Farm and garden experience are a plus, but not required.

FMI: Please contact Unity Barn Raisers, or 948-9005.

That's about it for this week.

Until next time.
