The start of the 2018/2019 gleaning season is quickly approaching. We anticipate a sweet corn gleaning in Clewiston on November 17 to start off the sweet corn season. We are also waiting for the go ahead from our lettuce and leaf growers, which should come sometime in November to start our gleaning events in Belle Glade. Our east coast sites appear to be on target for a January 12 start and our Palm City fields look to be ready on February 9. Of course, there is a lot of weather to come between now and then, temperature fluctuations and always the unforeseen; but crops are resilient and so are we!
For those of you looking to bring a group to a Monday and Friday gleaning event, Keith has 5 of 22 days booked already. Let Keith know what looks good.
