Gleaning & Community Cooking
Slow Harvest is a network of community volunteers, farmers, gardeners, food banks and food professionals working together to extend the rich bounty of good food in Sonoma County. Food that may otherwise go to waste, is gleaned from local farms and gardens, gathered from farmers’ markets, bakeries and other producers, and transported to local food banks where it is distributed to folks in our community who can really use it.
It's easy to glean! Plant an extra row in your garden. Talk to your neighbors who have that fruit tree laden with unpicked fruit. Start a school or neighborhood gleaning project. Contact us, we are happy to help you get your project off the ground, and connect you to existing gleaning groups in your area.
