Thank you for an amazing harvesting season

This is my last week as the Coordinator for Fruit Share – what a wonderful four months it has been! Time really flies when you’re having fun.

picking apples
There's something very pleasant about climbing up a tall ladder to pick piles of apples. Tasty, too!

To give you an idea of just how fantastic this season was, here’s a little comparison from the 2010 season to the 2011 season:

  • 436% increase in fruit harvested.
  • 485% increase in number of harvests.
  • 2,001% increase in number of volunteers.
  • 546% increase in number of homeowners.
  • 316% increase in number of charities donated to.
  • 1,110% increase in number of neighbourhoods Fruit Share operated in.
  • 600% increase in number of fruit preserving workshops.
  • 400% increase in amount of fruit composted.

Wow! There’s no doubt about it – Fruit Share is growing in leaps and bounds! We managed to achieve a lot this year and I am so looking forward to what Fruit Share continues to accomplish in the future. Hope you have a great winter and I’m sure our paths will cross again!
