Are you a fruit or vegetable producer? LiveWell Colorado and UpRoot are conducting a survey on gleaning, and they need your help.
Gleaning is the act of gathering leftover produce after a harvest. “Leftover” produce includes seconds, imperfects, or produce that will not be sold or distributed for any reason – in other words, produce that is not economically profitable to harvest.
The survey, below, is intended to determine the need and desire for expanding regionally-based gleaning efforts, as well as how these efforts can also benefit farmers.
