Community Fruit Gleaning this Saturday Sept 15 - everyone welcome!

COMMUNITY FRUIT GLEANING (Rain or shine!)

Join the Rossland Sustainability Commission and Rossland Real Food to pick fruit from trees located on public land.

Help us pick all the fruit trees on Rossland's public land SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2018. To participate meet at 10:00 am at Ecole de Sept Sommets to divide-up neighbourhoods and then head out with your ladders & boxes to pick fruit.  Bring your own ladders, boxes, and picking pails or bags.  A belt looped through a pail or cloth bag makes picking more efficient!  

Turn your fruit gleanings into juice or cider!  We will press the fruit we glean immediately after the gleaning.  Pressing will take place at the Doell homestead (Wagon Road near the Chinese Gardens).  Remember to bring some containers for taking home your cider.  A big pot or clean plastic beverage bottles work well!  For long term storage,  cider should be frozen or canned.

More info?   Check out the Facebook event page here and sign up to glean!  Or contact Ann at adamude@telus(dot)net  or Jenna at jfoxdesigns1(at)gmail(dot)com
