Gleaner’s Project

Gleaner'sThe St. Peter’s Gleaners partner with area farmers, local food pantries, community organizations and volunteers to:

Fully capture local resources:

using food that is grown in our area and minimizing food waste

Strengthen the local food supply:

providing fresh, nutritious food to those in greatest need

Promote community spirit:

harvesting together at local farms and markets, sharing meals, and learning and training others in agricultural arts

Create meaningful employment:

developing apprenticeships and intern programs for those in need of work.

 

Look for the Gleaners in action –

We are looking forward to holding a series of workshops again, during the summer harvest time. Check our “events” page for future events.
