Help us glean and keep good produce out of the compost bin!


Summer gleaning is just around the corner at Sustainable Ballard’s Market Gleaning Project. We are looking for volunteers to help collect donations of produce from the Sunday Ballard Farmers Market and sort the produce at the Ballard Food Bank. The commitment is from 2:45pm to 5pm on Sundays. This project is such a rewarding effort for all the volunteers involved. It is a great opportunity for people who are interested in keeping good produce out of the compost bin and getting it to our Ballard neighbors in need. We collect the extra produce the farmers don’t want to take home from participating vendors, and deliver it to the nearby Ballard Food Bank, thus supplying them with fresh, local and generally organic produce. Teams rotate depending on numbers every 3-4 weeks. Interested gleaners should contact Katie.
