ForestR Gleaning

What Is It?

Gleaning is the practice of harvesting excess crops and donating them to food resource partners all throughout our community.

If you would like us to harvest your fruit at no cost to you and deliver it to a food bank, click the button below and tell us about your garden:

Know Someone With a Tree?

Download this PDF file, print or share this flier with them and maybe their bounty can be part of the communities bounty.

We harvest trees from public and private lands. With permission, of course. So, we are always looking for new trees and welcome all introductions.

Goals

Establish a database of at least 250 fruit tree owners willing to donate extra fruit, train 6 gleaning leads, and increase the number of gleaning volunteers to 100, so that we can harvest 2-3 times per week year-round and donate at least 15,000 lbs of fruit per year.
