City Fruit looking to harvest late-season pears and apples from neighborhood trees

September 17th, 2014 · Comments

Non-profit organization City Fruit is looking for Greenwood and Phinney Ridge fruit tree owners to let volunteers harvest their extra fruit to donate to local food banks and meal programs, including the Greenwood Food Bank. Right now they’re looking to harvest late-season pears and apples.

City Fruit has collected more than 15,000 pounds of fruit so far this harvest season. If you have fruit trees to be harvested, contact Harvest Coordinator Luke Jesperson at luke@cityfruit.org.

And they’re always looking for volunteer harvesters. You can sign up online.
