Local Fruit Gleaning Program Debuts!
In partnership with Healthy Community Food Systems and Bear Smart Durango, the Colorado State University (CSU) Extension Office has established a Fruit Gleaning Program, a website to match residents that have excess fruit with those that could use some via an online Bulletin Board. Let’s work together to feed community members instead of the local bear population! Read a summary of this program.
TO LOCATE EXTRA FRUIT:
- Go to www.laplataextension.org
- Click on “Horticulture” then “La Plata County Fruit Tree Gleaning.”
- Here you will find a listing of homeowners who have an excess of tree fruit for you to assist in harvesting.
TO LIST EXTRA FRUIT:
- If you are a homeowner with extra fruit, call 970-382-6463 and list: 1) the type of fruit tree(s) available, 2) your general location, and 3) your contact information of choice.
