It seems strange that the title of this blog finally has a solid referent. Last Thursday I picked up bags of gravenstein apples from a backyard in Temelec and took them to the Teen Center in the Springs - the first actual traffic in produce for the Sonoma Valley Gleaning Project. We are having our orientation for gleaners Monday evening, August 13 at 7:00 p.m. at Trinity Church in Sonoma. Woo-hoo!
BTW - the Valley of the Moon Teen Center is a great place. Very responsive to the needs and interests of the youth it serves. They have a small commercial kitchen, and a young woman, with a little help from the boys who were at the center that afternoon, was making brownies on contract for the Impact 100 luncheon the next day. The baking program is called "Lovin' Oven". http://www.svteens.org/programs/ They may do a preserving workshop this fall, and I hope there is a way we can hook up interest at Trinity with the Teen Center.
