Gleaning at Wake Robin Farm, Tuesday 12/4, Volunteers needed!

NH Farm to School is helping organize gleaning at Wake Robin Farm this coming Tuesday:

“Wake Robin Farm in Stratham has an abundance of turnips this year and is interested in having gleaners come to harvest them. I have made arrangements to go to the farm next Tuesday morning to harvest and then deliver the turnips to several area food pantries as well as a few schools. Many hands are needed to harvest this abundance so I’m putting a call out for volunteers! If you have a few hours to spare to help out that would be awesome! The weather is supposed to be nice. You will need to bring a knife or something to cut the tops off as well as some boxes to put the turnips in. I can deliver some of them but also need another vehicle to deliver.”

Email Stacey Purslow, Stacey.Purslow@unh.edu, for more information and to let her know if you can help out! And thank you Wake Robin Farm for your generosity to the community!
