2015 Gleaning Report

Report 2015 Gleaning Year! Thank you everyone who were involved. We picked $20,000 worth of food. With 18 bus trips and 33 car trips. This includes Peterborough Gleans and Tree for the Picking (Nourish). Last year 2014  we had more gleaners each trip with the buses because we were allowed to drive to the farm but this year everyone needed to be on the bus. About 400 people picked this year through Peterborough Gleans & Tree for the Picking. We are preparing for the new year! In May I hope to have a workshop for volunteers. If you are interested let me know. 705 749 9977

Update

We are looking for more funding so we can pick more sweet corn and tomatoes.
We are looking for volunteers to drive gleaners to pick apples and pears.

I am not taking more registrations for gleaners.

Thanks. Lori
