Fruit harvests in Parkdale

Calgary Harvest is an organization dedicated to turning a fallen fruit problem into a local food solution. Parkdale is one of the focus communities for 2015.

IMG_0214Here is what we are looking for:

Fruit trees

Do you have a fruit tree you are unable to pick? Let us know and we will organize volunteers to come pick your fruit. The pickers share the fruit with the homeowner if they are interested. We are most interested in full size apples, pears, cherries, and apricots (yes, we have a few apricot trees in Calgary!).

Pickers

Interested in harvesting fruit in your community? You will be able to take a share of the fruit home for your family.

Sharing the harvest

We would love to connect with the many organizations providing healthy food in Parkdale and share some of the harvest with them.

Apple press

Calgary Harvest has an apple press that is available to volunteers to make juice. We are going to try and get a press based in Bowness, stay tuned!
