Free Persimmons!

Persimmons Overload! –

This morning I volunteered with Village Harvest in Mountain View, CA, and we harvested about 1000 lbs of permissions from about 5 houses in about 4 hours.   This produce will be distributed directly starting the next day for Mountain View Community Service Agency for people who are on various food assistance programs.   I brought back some of the less than perfect fruit and put it at our local farm stand for distribution.

Each time I volunteer at one of these events, I realize that if each homeowner were to have just a single produce tree, we could share the excess bounty that a single homeowner could not possibly begin to consume.


The Farm stand on Sunday 11/17/2013.   We need help distributing the persimmons harvest!  Please come by and do you part!
