A full day of apples and corn

Monday, we began our day at Cumis in their beautiful orchard for the 20th Annual Apple Day where we harvested 8 boxes (approx. 75 lbs) of Red Delicious, and MacIntosh apples. It was a very well organized event, and we had a great time working along side one of their very helpful employees!

The second half of our day was spent at Parkside Farms gleening corn with Fatima from Hamilton Food Share where we picked 1300 lbs of corn.

A big thanks to Cumis, and to Farmer Ben at Parkside Farms for welcoming us to pick their delicious apples and corn! Also, thanks go out to Hamilton Food Share for picking up and distributing our pickings.
