OFRE pickings weekend of Aug 13th-15th

OFRE is off with a bang this weekend!

We have a lot of fruit to pick, and a lot of pickings to choose from – the waiting is over!

In the central part of Edmonton:

Friday, August 13th – meet at 6:30pm at 8927 – 77 ave. to pick apples and possibly raspberries at 2 locations.

Saturday, August 14th – meet at 1pm at 8906  – 73 st. to pick apples and possibly other fruit at 1 or 2 locations.

In the west end of the city:

Sunday, August 15th – meet at 10am at 10240 – 161 St. to pick cherries, apples and crabapples at 4 locations.

For those of you new to OFRE, please come prepared to pick fruit and have a good time outside – that means:

– sunscreen and bug spray, hats and water to drink!
– any boxes or pails that you can carry fruit in
– any ladders or stepladders that you can bring. Please remember that fruit grows on tall trees, so you’ll probably have to climb up at some point to get it picked. 🙂

More than anything, this is an opportunity to get outside with fun people and get some local food to where it can do some good – whether for you or for a local charity. Thanks so much everyone!
