Join Us This Saturday February 25th the first Pick N’Kitchen of 2012
Welcome to the first Hollywood Orchard Pick N’Kitchen of 2012! Below you will find all details about this special event and we hope to see you there:
Saturday, Feb. 25th, 8:30am – 1pm.
Glen Green cul-de-sac, just up the street from Beachwood Dr. Look for signs on the street to easily find us!
Urban farming fun as we harvest unused fruit throughout Beachwood Canyon. All collected fruit will be cleaned and prepared at our on-site kitchen for either donation to local food pantries or tasty treats in support of the new Hollywood Orchard!
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in for the event, receive a name tag and enjoy some light refreshments. We will start at 9am and divide into different work crews before heading out to pick fruit. Crews will return around 11am and begin separating and preparing the fruit before taking a lunch break. An afternoon shift will enjoy working in the on-site kitchen and learn new recipes from our fabulous chefs!
WHAT TO BRING:
Please wear comfortable, old clothes and sturdy shoes, as we’ll be working throughout the morning. Bring a hat, sunscreen, a snack and a water bottle. Everyone is welcome to stay for lunch, so also bring a bag lunch with you and we’ll provide the drinks. A lunch break will happen about 11am. The Beachwood Market is just up the street if you want to purchase something there. HARVEST TOOLS: If you have pruning sheers, fruit pickers, work gloves and plastic buckets, please bring them. KITCHEN TOOLS: Please bring your own kitchen knife and vegetable peeler if you have them, (and be sure to label with your name!).
TRANSPORTATION & PARKING:
Please walk, ride a bike or carpool to the Glenn Green cul-de-sac as parking is very limited down on Beachwood Drive. Be sure to check parking signs and please be respectful of our neighbors and where you leave your vehicle.
Thanks for all your great support and we look forward to a fun Pick N’Kitchen day!
