Volunteer Gleaning Day with North Country Food Alliance
October 26, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Gleaning is the act of harvesting fresh produce that would otherwise go to waste at orchards, gardens, and farms. This is high-quality food that would rot in the field if not for outside efforts—possibly due to constraints on time, storage, or budget. North Country Food Alliance is partnering with Dream of Wild Health Farm to coordinate volunteers to harvest excess produce on an as-needed basis. NCFA will deliver this food to kitchens and food shelves run by and for Native and Indigenous community members. Gleaning workdays also involve some additional farm labor, such as weeding, to help support small-scale agriculture. Sign up here
Upon arrival at the farm, all volunteers will sign a waiver of liability for Dream of Wild Health, have their temperature taken, and will receive a food handling and safety orientation. Volunteers are asked to bring their own PPE (facial coverings) and follow all safety protocols related to COVID-19, per the request of the farm. Please email Joe Vital (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
