What a "Grape" weekend!

Over the weekend, we had back to back grape picks.


While the majority of the white, red and purple grapes went to Mission Services, today we held a "juicing" workshop for some of the kids at Robert Land Community Association in their after school program. We juiced the grapes and the kids loved it! It is so exciting to see kids trying new things and being open to tasting real juice!


Big thanks to all our volunteers that helped us pick grapes, vine owners for letting us come and harvest, volunteers at Robert Land and to Robert Land for letting us come and run our workshop.

Tomatoes

It was deja-vu today, as we harvested roma tomatoes from Our Fathers' Farm, Dundas, ON. It was a perfect day with the sun shining and a cool breeze to keep us energized as we harvested 36 bushels today.

Lets hope that the frost holds off as there are still plenty of tomatoes in the fields.


Thanks again to our volunteers who worked madly, Douglas - farmhand, Our Fathers' Farm and Hamilton FoodShare.

Apples!

We are officially in our busy season!

We harvested over 1,000 lbs of apples on Saturday and Monday alone. Thanks to our volunteers and homeowners on Carpenter Avenue and Lister Avenue.

And the picks continue!

"To-Mate-o"? "Toe-mato?"

How ever you pronounce it, there is a lot of it at Our Fathers Farm, Dundas, ON.

In partnership with Ontario Food Bank Association and Hamilton FoodShare, Our Fathers Farm planted tomatoes and onions for foodbanks and all this week Fruit Tree volunteers have been busy harvesting cherry and roma tomatoes.




Thank you to worker, Douglas for guiding us and harvesting alongside us as we harvested (Pictured - top photo)

Thanks to Fatima for organizing the pick and Douglas for keeping us on track!
Many thanks to our volunteers who have been harvesting all week long - we could not do this without you all!
