Quesnel’s WildSafeBC program will be partnering with other local volunteer groups and businesses to carry out a Fruit Gleaning Program within the City of Quesnel to remove all surplus fruit or fruit that residents are unable to utilize or dispose of.
Fruit that is of good enough quality for use will be separated and distributed to local aid organizations.
The remainder will be disposed of at local agricultural operations or safely disposed of at the local landfill.
City residents with surplus fruit or those who wish to volunteer can contact Lita at WildSafeBC at 250-992-5743 or by email at [email protected] to arrange for disposal of surplus fruit.
WildSafeBC will be participating in Culture Days Saturday, Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for year-end fruit picking and cleanup.
