Meet at the field by 8:00am

There is not a GPS address but the directions are simple:
From Main St and Pigeon (Hwy 276), take Hwy 276 for 5.6 miles.
Turn right onto Lake Logan Rd (at the gas station) and continue for .7 miles.
Turn left onto Chambers Farm Rd and take an immediate left onto Heavenly Rd.
The field will be on your right.

Quantity estimate: approximately 2000 lbs.

Please do NOT begin gleaning until instructed to do so by the Glean Manager.

Glean Manager:
Carol Larsen
(225) 603-2092

By 3pm Thursday afternoon (9/10), please call, leave a message or text (preferred) Julie Powers at (281) 787-4114.

Identify yourself and indicate “yes” (you are available to transport for this glean) or “no” (you are not available for this glean).

Boxes (sturdy, medium size), sun protection, drinking water and gloves.

As always, please feel free to bring out-of-town guests and/or kids to the gleans. It’s fun for the whole family!

Shoes suitable for uneven ground and/or muddy conditions

Assume the glean is ON unless otherwise notified via email since it may be raining at your home but not at the field.

In an effort to assure fairness, produce will be distributed (on a rotating basis) to predetermined and preapproved Haywood Gleaners recipient entities. Gleaned produce may not be sold.

If desired, gleaners may take home a small amount of produce for their personal use AFTER it has been weighed/tallied. A grocery bag should be used for this purpose and gleaners may not “cherry pick” the best produce for their personal use.
