Idea Grows on Trees in California

This is an article from the Contra Costa Times Newspaper dated 2/26/08 by Sara Steffens.

A woman by the name of Nataha Boissier founded the nonprofit organization, North Berkeley Harvest, that gathers unwanted fruits, vegetables, herbs (produce) from peoples homes and donates it to Bay Area schools and soup kitchens. What a great idea!

If you would like to volunteer your time or produce and to learn more about this organization go to the website or by phone 510/812-3369.

A similiar organization in the South Bay, Santa Clara County, is called Village Harvest. They are at or by phone at 888/378-4841.

Happy Picking and Giving
