Review for Americas Grow a Row Inc, Pittstown, NJ, USA
On September 17th, a group of 5 from our office volunteered for the first time apple gleaning for Americas Grow a Row. We were truly in awe hearing the story behind Americas Grow a Row. It really motivated us to do our very best to glean the apples for all of those less fortunate that do not have access to fresh produce. We spent 2 hours in the orchards sorting through and rescuing all the apples that were in good condtion and would be donated to nearby food pantries. By the end our session, my office in addition to 3 other groups had rescued 3600 lbs of apples which equates to 14,000 servings!! It was an amazing experience and we felt very accomplished with our efforts. We would definitely reccommend this organization to others and we are headed back on Oct 7th for a second round of gleaning to support Americas Grow a Row!
