  1. I live in the north Woodland Hills area. We have two trees, one a pomagranite and the other a persimin. They are both loaded with fruit. I have called several food banks in the area offering the fruit to them if they could just have someone come out and pick it (nothing needed back-strictly a donation) but have not heard back from any of them. Do you know any group who would be interested?

    • Yes! There is a group called Food Forward that will harvest your trees, and then make sure all the fruit goes to local food pantries and groups in need for immediate distribution. They are one of tho most inspiring groups I have ever encountered, and people can also sign up to be volunteer gleaners, which is a lot of fun. I was fortunate to hear Meg Glasser on a community food panel at the Good Food Festival & Conference a couple of weeks ago. They will certainly call you right back! Here is the contact info:
