Vice chair and DECA-holic, Catherine Porter has sent along this interesting bit-o-blog.
‘Not far from the tree‘ is coming to our ‘hood. They are a really neat not-for-profit that picks fruit (and taps maple trees!) in people’s yards and distributes it to local groups who can use it. Here is a Toronto Star story written about the group.
They are working with the Shoelace Collective — a group working out of the Woodbine Heights Baptist church (Woodbine and Sammon). They’ve started to register trees and are already hitting the ground. More info at firstname.lastname@example.org.
