I got a call from David Shenk at Elkhart County Community Corrections who suggested that people in the Elkhart County work release program might enjoy helping glean apples.
A few years ago Elkhart County Works Together organized a group of work release folks to help tend community gardens in Goshen and they really enjoyed the opportunity to work outdoors and learn how to garden.
This is a potential opportunity for many extra hands helping pick apples and creating connections. If this opportunity interests you or have ideas of who to connect this opportunity to, let us know.
