Thanks for an amazing and fun 2009!
Thanks to everyone who came out to our Volunteer Appreciation Evening at Bread and Roses cafe. We feasted on platters of food, piled high with delicious baked goods, fresh fruit and veggies, and crackers and cheese. Door prizes were handed out - thanks to Ottawa Street Farmers Market for donating gift certificates and bags. The photos looked amazing, hanging up against the red brick wall of Bread and Roses. The focus of the evening was around "appreciation" and Fruit Tree is soooo grateful to many people and organizations.
We are grateful that we harvested 5,300 lbs this year! Congratulations and thanks to the volunteers and homeowners for their work and support.
