In 2010 we harvested 3,602 lbs of fruit, including apples, oranges, pears, asian pears, loquats,
persimmons and plums that were donated by 43 backyard fruit owners.
My observations this past year:
More families than ever before contacted me asking where they could donate the fruit.
I was happy about this trend as it seemed more families were engaging in picking their own
trees and enjoying the experience of brining the fruit to their local shelter, school etc...
I was contacted by four different individuals from around the country wanting to start their
own backyard harvest initiatives where they live. Seems as if the idea has caught on!
We're looking forward to a great year ahead. All the best to all of you!
