On June 22, we hit the city with 10 volunteers from Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton to collect rhubarb! Homeowners signed up in advanced, we created multiple routes, and we split up to cover the city.
In about three hours we were able to harvest almost 400 lbs of rhubarb!
Some rhubarb will be saved for a future cider, some went to Edmonton’s Food Bank, and some to our lovely volunteers.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out with the shared goal to rescue food from going to waste in Edmonton. We hope everyone enjoys some delicious rhubarb treats!
