End of Season Glean & After Party

Join Spokane Edible Tree Project for our 5th annual End of Season Glean! Every year, SETP gathers as many volunteers as we can muster to meet in Green Bluff to glean the last apples of the season. We then send the apples out to those who need them most, doing our part to soothe the challenges of hunger and food waste in our community.

We will meet at Hidden Acres Farm to go over ground rules, how to harvest, safety procedures, and equipment training. We will then split up into teams to go harvest as many apples as we can at participating Green Bluff farms throughout the area!

After the glean, be sure to come celebrate the end of gleaning season with the SETP Crew! Join us for this free, family friendly after party at:

Big Barn Brewery

16004 N Applewood Ln

Mead, WA 99021

Please register here, or email Annie at americorp@spokaneedibletreeproject.org to RSVP for the event.

Northwest Spokane Pluot Glean

The pluots weren't quite ripe last weekend due to to excessive heat that caused the trees to stress so that they slowed down their ripening, but the slightly lower temperatures over the weekend sped the ripening process back up again, so despite this week's heat the pluots should be just about right for us to pick on Saturay, August 11.

We will meet at Webster Park at 10 am and head to the house from there. For folks without cars who have been waiting for a more accessible glean to get involved, this site is right by the 22 bus route and a pleasant bike ride from downtown.

Bring yourself, a water bottle, and closed-toed shoes. Friends, children, and other harvest helpers are always welcome. We'll go over safety concerns and picking instructions and then get started!

You can register here.
