Calling All Rhubarb!

Have you seen this plant?

It’s rhubarb and it’s growing all over the province in lanes, backyards and abandoned farm sites.  It’s hardy, it’s tart and it makes awesome pies, crisps, coffee cakes and jam.  And, it’s almost ready to harvest!

If you see a patch of this plant that isn’t being harvested, why not knock on the door and see if the owner will allow you to pick a few stalks.  Or, drop a Got Fruit? note in their mailbox to encourage them to sign up their rhubarb for Fruit Share.

We have volunteers ready and eager to pick the rhubarb growing in and around our city.

Please pass on the message that Fruit Share is looking for surplus rhubarb.
