Hey Salemites! Would you like to pick blueberries for a good cause? Neighborhood Harvest of Salem (www.salemharvest.org) is picking 2000 blueberry bushes on Wednesday evening and Friday morning this week. They are going to open up the Wednesday picking for more pickers because there are plenty of berries and there is plenty of parking. Friday's picking hasn't even opened up for sign-up yet, so get signed up to volunteer quickly. Today's harvest filled up fast!
The great thing about Neighborhood Harvest is that you are doing charity while getting free produce. Half the the produce goes to Marion Polk Food Share to add fresh fruit to food boxes for families in need. The other half? It goes home with you! I went out today and picked 12 pounds of blueberries in 2 hours. I brought 6 pounds home, which will keep me stocked with berries throughout the winter. So come out and pick blueberries for charity (and some for your tummy!).
