summary: sweet cherries (possibly Hedelfingen, Vega, Vogue or Van) picked for Not Far From the Tree on 29 June 2014 in a backyard of Toronto: in 2 hours, 5 of us picked 37 lbs in all (1/3 to the tree owner, 1/3 shared by the pickers, and 1/3 delivered by bicycle to be donated to food banks, shelters, and community kitchens in the neighbourhood).

 

 

 

Not Far From the Tree Not Far From the Tree

“Not Far From the Tree” is a Toronto organization that includes a residential fruit-picking program to pick fruit (with permission, of course) that would otherwise go to waste.

There are lots and lots of fruit trees in Toronto!! Bearing fruit that is eaten by birds, squirrels and raccoons. If you have such a tree and would like the animalsto share the fruit with people, please do contact “Not Far From the Tree”. They will send a team of pickers to clean up your yard of fallen fruit and pick the good fruit that is still in the tree. The harvested fruit is divided evenly into 3 portions: one third going to the tree owners, one third going to the volunteer pickers and the final third going to food banks, shelters, and community kitchens.
