PRODUCE TRANSPORT VOLUNTEERS
By 5pm TUESDAY evening (9/1), 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).

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

For this glean, you can bring long handled “apple pickers” or any similar reach-and-grab gadgets that would be helpful since we cannot use ladders to access high branches.

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

Wear:
Shoes suitable for uneven ground and/or muddy conditions

Weather:
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.

Note:
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.

Quantity estimate: 2000 lbs!
