Seth Rolland has been co-ordinating the QCH Gleaners since 2009. From July-October teams of volunteers pick fruit from backyard sources to give to schools, non-profits, and senior centers. Gleaners also pick from the Blue Heron Middle School orchard before school is in session and gives the fruit to the Food Banks. In 2019 over 6,000 pounds of fruit were donated to the schools.
Volunteer Gleaners for the 2021 season please contact Sethrolland@gmail.com or 360-379-0414 to get on the list. Come to one picking or come to all as your time allows.
Volunteers meet Tuesdays 3-5, and Saturdays 10-12 (July-October) at Seth's garage to pick up ladders, picking bags, and directions to the picks-of-the-day. 1039 Jackson St, Port Townsend, WA 98368
