Fruit Glean Happy Hour (La Plata County) - August 5
Time & Location
About the Event
Reduce food waste, save bears, and feed community by harvesting fruit! Our region has an abundance of fruit trees, which often produce more than property owners can handle! Fruit Glean Happy Hour rescues this yummy fruit and redistributes it - into the hands of people who need it most, and away from bears and landfills. The Good Food Collective provides everything you need to harvest with our little group, all you need to do is show up to pick! You take home the fruit you want, and the rest gets donated to regional food banks and pantries. Can we get a heck-yes?!
Kids are welcome to join; this is a family friendly event! But, please only RSVP with the number of active harvesters so as to not fill up spots unnecessarily! This also helps us to know how much equiptment to bring! As a reminder, adults/guardians are responsible for the safety of their kids.
Once you RSVP to the event, we will send you an email with the harvest site's address and other details so that you can meet us at the property! Come prepared with water, close-toed shoes, sunscreen, and a bag to take any fruit home with you. HAPPY HARVEST SEASON
