Second Harvests

Second Harvests Meaford is active. In 2017 harvests originated from a network of unsprayed orchards. There were 3 processing days in which we made pear sauce, apple sauce, and apple pie. Please visit their web site at:

Intention:
We are currently visioning an open forum of local volunteers and beneficiaries in order to make this a reality. Harvest proceeds will be shared between all beneficiaries. Let us know your interest or refer us to volunteers or community group in need.
The Need:
Big tomato crop?
Swimming in apples?
Want to pick, cook, preserve, and feed healthy abundance back to the community?
Collectively prepare, preserve, or cook our abundance.
Join us!
Progress:
On October 31st, a crew of community trick-or-eaters went door-to-door to collect non-perishable goods for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
A small group gather to pick apples & make cider.  Potential partnership with a community cider press.
Various Transition members have shared excess crops.
