Do you have more fruit than you can harvest? Or would you like to harvest fruit from other people's trees in Kaslo and Area D? Our Harvest Share Food Recovery program helps connect people with excess fruit, with those who'd like to harvest fruit. Call the Food Hub to register your tree for volunteer harvesters, or call to register as a volunteer harvester. 353-7120.

Here's today's pick of plums in lower Kaslo with volunteer Ash Mason.
