PLEASE FILL OUT THE FORM TO LET US KNOW YOU ARE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING FOR THIS EVENT.
WE WILL THEN DETERMINE THE EVENT DATE BASED ON VOLUNTEER AVAILABILITY.
The Merrymeeting Gleaners, on behalf of the Merrymeeting Food Council, have been gleaning vegetables from Six Rivers Farm and the Bath Farmers Market on a weekly basis for several months. The project has donated close to 6,000 pounds of produce to local food pantries and other organizations working to address the problem of food insecurity.
We now have the opportunity to conduct a one-day apple gleaning at Rocky Ridge Orchard in Bowdoinham after the close of season at the orchard. The apples will then be donated to various food pantries and other organizations serving those in need.
At this time we do not have an exact date for the gleaning. We know that it will be around October 31st and should not last longer than a few hours including the time it takes to weigh and deliver the apples. We should have an exact date the third week of October.
At this point we are determining how many potential volunteers we will have to participate in this gleaning. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the attached form (link below). As soon as we have an exact date and time we will reach out to everyone that has completed the form to determine who can commit.
