HCET Blog 4-22

This has been such a whirlwind week for me! On Friday morning we received an unexpected location to harvest.  It was a huge grapefruit tree in the middle of a lush green backyard complete with fountains and a real-life 40-year-old tortoise! Luckily we had some fantastic spur of the moment volunteers who could come and help us out.  We picked over 13 crates full of grapefruit and with each crate weighing about 50 pounds that’s over 650 pounds of grapefruit!  On Saturday I attended an earth day event that Iskashitaa was tabling at.  We had all our beautiful clothes, baskets, water-bottle holders, jams and other preserves out for display.  The event was a huge success and people especially loved the pomegranate lime jelly (I tried some and it was Delicious).  People once again responded enthusiastically to our mission and hopefully we’ll have some more fruit trees and volunteers coming our way thanks to our efforts!  This Friday is the last HCETer harvest so if you haven’t had the chance to volunteer with us come on out!
