A very short post this evening – it is 1.30am as I write this.
We had a fantastic night tonight – the fine folks from Not Far From the Tree popped bye with bags of fruit and we preserved and tasted together for almost 6 hours. These guys are really amazing. We introduced them in a post here – but check out their website here. We will provide more info soon – the super Readers Digest version is this – they organize volunteers to harvest urban fruit from backyards around Toronto. A third of the fruit goes to the property owner, a third goes to the volunteers and the rest to charity.
They picked 3003 pounds last year – they are at 6,812 pounds so far this year! It is easy to get inspired by them.
Our friend Margaret Mulligan ( you met her here and can see her pro pics here and her blog here) was by to take some pics. There will be more posts this week – in the mean time we will start with some of the great shots:
