It's raining plums!
Fruit is ripening on the trees of Portland and dropping on the ground in buckets. We're going plummy! Through my neighborhood yahoo group, I found about: the Neighborhood Fruit Tree Project and they are hosting Harvesting Parties that begin this Saturday! You can sign up for a Harvesting Party in your area. They'll be picking in a different part of town every Saturday through mid-September. As a Harvesting Volunteer you can take home free fruit and help make fresh food available to those who need it most...A portion of each harvest will be donated to a local food pantry.
To sign up, please call 503-939-4914, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive the address for our meeting site and other details when you sign up.
