A-Peel-ing To The Core: FruitShare Barrie
Our Community’s Latest Urban Agriculture Program
FruitShare Barrie takes unwanted or unused fruit picked from trees to supply tree owners, volunteers, and the local food bank.
Come on out to Shear Park TODAY from 10-2 and see how Barrie is Living Green! Urban Pantry Barrie will be using fruit…Posted by Barrie FruitShare on Saturday, September 21, 2019
The Barrie community has hundreds of fruit trees that many homeowners view as a nuisance due to the fallen fruit attracting animals and insects. FruitShare Barrie sends volunteers to pick fruit from these trees which is then used, among other things, to supply the local food bank. They hope to change the way people view their fruit trees and see them as a valuable community resource instead. Types of fruit picked include currant, plums, apples, pears, and grapes.
Whether you have a fruit tree of your own, want to make a donation, or have some time to spare to pick fruit, check out all the details here.
