The Grateful Gleaners share a moment at Golden Rule Garden
Every year since 2004, The Willits Grateful Gleaners have collaborated with generous local homeowners to harvest and distribute extra fruit to schools and non-profit groups. Last year, those groups received approximately 2 and ½ tons of apples and pears which would have gone to waste without our efforts.
We have a solid core of dedicated veteran gleaners, including several enthusiastic newcomers, but we can always use more help. If you would like to glean, please leave a message at 459-5490, ext. 555-3663.
Call that same number if you need our help harvesting two or more fruit trees or a large garden. Otherwise, we encourage you to harvest your own trees and vegetable gardens and donate extra produce to the Food Bank (459-3333), Willits Daily Bread (459-3947) or the Senior Center (459-6826).
Come join us! In these tough economic times, every little bit helps somebody.
