I received this message from Sandi Newman, gleaning coordinator of North East Florida. If you follow this blog you know I reached out to her via her website Society of St. Andrews a few months ago to assist in gleaning the farms/orchards of Florida. She contacted me earlier this week to note the following:
We have citrus to harvest this Saturday morning in Mandarin. We’ll meet around 8:30 to pick and distribute to agencies across Jacksonville. We’ve gleaned this grove before and they have delicious fruit that is much appreciated by the shelters, pantries and other agencies we serve and those individuals that they feed.
Respond to this e-mail and I will send the address and directions to the gleaning site.
Thanks for your faithful support of the Gleaning Network!
I am awaiting her confirmation of location and directions on how to get there. If you can join me let’s meet up for an early morning cup of coffee.
