Seasonal Gleaning

Seasonal Gleaning

Yearly, land owners on Galiano find that their fruit trees produce far more than they can use. In many cases, this bounty falls to the ground. But thanks to the Food Program's Gleaning Project, owners can take part in a program where they get volunteer labour to collect their fruit. A share of the bounty goes to the land owner, and the rest goes to the people who pick the fruit and to the Food Bank and the Food Program itself, for community kitchens and other redistribution efforts.

Where is all the fruit???

Hi everyone,

I've noticed that this year's crop is much much smaller than last year's. One of my trees is almost bare and I've been hearing similar stories from other folks.

Any ideas of why this is happening???
