Mass Bears and Cubs is Teaming with G4G Boston and Boston Area Gleaners to Harvest Surplus Farm Crops for Those in Need.
WHAT: G4G Boston + Boston Area Gleaners + Mass Bears and Cubs
WHEN: Saturday, September 22, 8 AM – 1:30 PM, weather permitting
WHERE: A local farm, approximately 1 hour from Waltham, MA
Have you ever been gleaning? Gleaning is harvesting high-quality fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste on local farms. The fresh produce is then distributed to families struggling to access nutritious food. Harvesting is unpredictable and depends on the weather and crop readiness.
Anyone who is interested is encouraged to sign up for this project now, so G4G can begin organizing carpools, etc. More details, such as the crops that will be gleaned and the specific location of the farm, will be available soon.
