HELP US KEEP THIS PROGRAM RUNNING!
The Alberni Valley Gleaning Project depends on donations by community members, community organizations, and grants. Here are some ways you can help to keep us picking into the future!
PURCHASE APPLE SAUCE
You can help support the Alberni Valley Gleaning Project by purchasing apple sauce made from the fruit picked by volunteers. Apple sauce is available for purchase at the Spirit Square Farmers Market at the Harbour Quay on Saturdays from 9:00 am-12:00 pm.
We are now selling fruit at two locations. Up to 1/3 goes to the homeowner, up to 1/3 to the volunteers, and 1/3 to charity. Where extra fruit remains it is sold to raise funds for the project.
PURCHASE FRUIT FROM JUNE TO OCTOBER
SQUARE DANCE SEPTEMBER 30
Save the date!
Prior to the dance Pressing Matters will have an apple press on site. For a fee they will be making apple juice. If you have a surplus of apples and would like some juice contact Heather Shobe (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know how much you will be bringing.
Door: $15 Advanced: $12
Information on where to purchase tickets will be available soon.
