Vinifera grapes picked for Not Far From the Tree in September 2015
We pick fruit from Toronto trees and share it with Toronto people. […]
1/3 is offered to the tree owner, 1/3 is shared among the volunteers, and 1/3 is delivered by bicycle to be donated to food banks, shelters, and community kitchens in the neighbourhood so that we’re putting this existing source of fresh fruit to good use. It’s a win-win-win situation!
As you can see from the state of the grapes, the summer weather was quite variable. In spite of so many unripe grapes, the rendered juice was wonderfully fruity.
