Put it to good use by participating in Bread for the City's Glean for the City program. Email BFC if you have apple or pear trees on your property or in your community and if they produce more fruit than you need. You can also fill out this form. Bread for the City will be in touch with more detailed questions about your trees and how they can best work with you to harvest the fruit.
Glean for the City is also seeking volunteers to help pick the fruit and even organize neighborhood harvest parties. If interested, email Tonya Hamilton, Bread for the City’s gleaning coordinator.
More about the project is online here.
