FRUIT TREE & FARM GLEANING PROGRAM
The Fruit Tree and Farm Gleaning Program utilizes volunteers to harvest thousands of pounds of fresh fruit and produce from homes, farms and orchards that would otherwise go to waste and re-distribute the produce back into the community.
The program increases access to fresh local produce for people who need it, decreases food waste and emissions , and decreases bears and other animal attractants.
- 1/4 of the fruit goes to volunteers
- 1/4 of the fruit goes to homeowners
- 1/4 of the fruit is pressed into juice
- 1/4 of the fruit is used in LUSH Valley programming
