Posted: February 24 2012
Do you own a fruit tree or arbor in Cambridge and Somerville and don't want to harvest all the fruit yourself? The League of Urban Canners (LUrC) will remove your unwanted fruit, can it into sauce, jam or butter and return 10% of the product to you.During fall 2011, LUrC canned over 70 pints of apple sauce and 50 pints of grape jam from local apple trees and grape arbors and returned 10% of that to the owners.
* We remove fruit before it falls in your yard and makes a mess.
* We give you 10% of whatever product we make from your fruit.
* We schedule the exact time of the harvest in advance.
* We bring a small team of no more than three experienced harvesters.
* We use all our own tools.
* We clean up after ourselves.
* We do not charge.
If you own a fruit tree or arbor and are interested, or if you know of a fruit tree or arbor that is not being harvested, please contact us at [email protected]
