A successful harvesting season

Thank you very much to everyone who came out to Fruit Share’s 2011 Grand Finale yesterday afternoon – we had a lot of fun building cider presses, enjoying a tasty potluck and getting to know other volunteer fruit pickers.

7,386 lbs of fruit!

Thank you everyone so much for your participation and contributions – we couldn’t have done any of this without your support and your willingness to take part in rescuing fruit and distributing it to others in the community. Congratulations on a very successful year!
