Picking Pears

Last week we were lucky enough to have a couple of opportunities for our volunteers to pick pears. Here are some photos, and thoughts, from one of those picks, shared by volunteers Ariel and Maria.

“Had a great time on a beautiful warm fall day picking pears in St. Vital! Lots of helpers made for quick results! Only 1 hour and almost 200 lbs were collected. What a harvest! Thank you Fruit Share and everyone who contributed!”  -Maria, Volunteer

Some lovely looking pears.


Here’s the fruit owner up in the tree. We love it when they get right in there with us!


Working hard to get those pears.


What a haul!
