The Langley Community Harvest Program is a “gleaning” program that aims to collect and redistribute fruit found on local backyard trees that otherwise goes unused. Every year, thousands of pounds of fresh produce that might have become a nuisance instead benefits families, seniors, and other members of our community.
Residents of the Langley area who have a fruit tree on their property can join the registry. When the fruit is ripe, LEPS staff organize volunteers to harvest, and the fruit is shared between the tree donors, volunteers, and community organizations like local food banks.
The program also welcomes berry bushes, backyard vegetables, or even commercial farms.
