2012 Stats Are In – Another Record Breaking Year!

After one last apple pick last week, I think it’s finally safe to say that our fruit harvesting season has come to an end. And what a season its been.  We are so proud of how far we’ve come together over the last few years!

None of this would be possible without the hard work of our volunteers, the generosity of our fruit owners, and the support of our many partners, and we can’t thank you enough for that.

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate our successes at our season wrap up party this Sunday, October 21. It’s from 1-3 pm at Art City (616 Broadway).

    1. Congratulations Getty & to the rest of the Fruit Share team!

      Organizing 118 harvests amongst 240 volunteers and 293 home owners is an INCREDIBLE amount of work!!!

      I hope your celebration on the weekend was fantastic.

      Here in Ottawa we’ve been hit hard by the Nut lobby. They’ve convinced us to extend our season to collect & share nuts so many of our volunteers are still out there picking. It’ll be another month or so before our final numbers for the year are in.

    2. I grew up in a small town in Oregon and had fruit trees on our land and our own garden every year, but I have lived in the desert for 20 years now. Stumbling on to your site is refreshing.
