Les arbres fruitiers des Torontois sont entre de bonnes mains! Les bénévoles glaneurs de  Not Far From The Tree s’assurent de cueillir le plus de fruits possible des arbres de résidences privés de la ville. La récolte est ensuite divisée en trois: un tiers pour un organisme de bienfaisance local, un autre  pour les propriétaires et le dernier est partagé entre les bénévoles.

Baking with Not Far From The Tree Bounty: caramel apple upside down cake.

J’ai récemment participé à une cueillette de pommes avec des bénévoles de Not Far From the Tree. Plus de  345 livres de pommes (156 kilogrammes) plus tard: un gâteau renversé aux pommes au caramel et une chronique. Vous pouvez l’entendre sur le site de Y a pas deux matins pareils.

The perfect glean with Not Far From The Tree

Toronto’s fruit trees are in excellent hands! Not Far From The Tree‘s volunteer gleaners carefully pick as much fruit as possible out of trees in the yards of the city’s homes. The bounty is then divided in three: a third for a local food bank or other community organization, a third for the home owners and the rest is shared between the volunteers who took part in the harvest.

I recently took part in an apple harvest with some Not Far From The Tree volunteers. Three hundred forty five pounds of apples later, I prepared a caramel apple upside down cake and presented a radio segment. Listen to it on Y a pas deux matins pareils’ website.
