Got Fruit? Vancouver Fruit Tree Project Wants You!

29 May

FruitTreeProjectThe Vancouver Fruit Tree Project Society is a local non-profit in operation since 1999. Since it’s inception they have picked more than 68,000 pounds of produce and redistributed it throughout the community to social service organizations.  The Society works with over 300 volunteers including tree fruit pickers as well as those offering trees for a backyard harvest.  The program benefits some 8,000 people.  Do you have a fruit tree to offer or have some time to volunteer this summer?  You can learn more at the Season Kick Off happening Tuesday, June 11th at The Hive, #210 – 128 West Hastings Street from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  The evening includes a zero waste event, potluck, prizes, games and a beeswax wrap workshop. The Season Kick Off is a free event and everyone is welcome.  If you’d like more information, drop them a note at info@vancouverfruittreeproject.com.
