Volunteer Interview – Sagan Morrow

Sagan Morrow is a professional freelance editor and writer. She has been part of Fruit Share since she became its inaugural summer harvest coordinator in 2011 – before she had ever been on a pick! At the time, she was looking for work in project management for a non-profit, community-based group.

After her summer as coordinator, Sagan joined the Fruit Share Advisory Committee and was instrumental in those first years of growth. Time constraints forced her to step away for a couple of years, but now she is back as our Blog Manager.

    WANTED: Volunteer Event Organizers

    Last year Fruit Share had its first annual pie fundraiser and fruit fair. Now it’s time to plan this year’s event – and we could use your help!

    For last year’s event we hand-made and sold over 200 apple and pumpkin pies, played games, served tea and coffee, and generally had a great time. Sure, making 200 pies in 3 days was a little intense – but we sure had a lot of laughs! We also raised necessary funds to enable us to keep rescuing that fruit.

    Now, we’re well on our way to planning our second annual pie and fruit fair and want to give you the opportunity to join the planning team.

    Strawberry Dream Ice Cream and Fruit Share workshops


    Fruit Share has been busy cooking up a storm with lots of local community groups this summer! This past week has been really fun with a few ice cream making workshops – it’s been a real treat given the hot summer weather we’ve been having. ​Participants got to churn, kick, shake, and throw around ingredients into ice cream and sorbet. We used a hand-crank ice cream maker and an ice cream ball to turn cream, strawberries, sugar, and orange juice into sweet frozen treats. See below for a delicious, easy recipe to make “Strawberry Dream” ice cream.
