Last Harvest of the Year!
It was a perfect day to spend outdoors, harvesting apples for Hamilton FoodShare.
The sun was shining and the air crisp at Williams Orchards in Milton, ON.
It was the last day of harvesting for Hamilton Fruit Tree Project, Hamilton FoodShare and Halton Fruit Tree Project and what a way to end the season - we harvested 7,000+ lbs of Ira Reds and Empires with the help and hard work of our amazing volunteers!
A huge thank you to Williams Orchards and farmers Elgin and Sandra (pictured below is Elgin) for their generosity - they even welcomed us into their homes as we broke bread ( roti, actually) for lunch.
Thank you to our partners, Hamilton FoodShare and Halton Fruit Tree Project - it was great to work together over the harvesting season and we look forward to 2012!
A big thank you to our volunteers who come out and work hard - always inspiring!
Hamilton Fruit Tree will be back in 2012.
