Gleaning Trees for (and with) Refugees

This video combines two of my favorite things–local news and tree gleaning. Here, Tucson’s KVOA tells us about Iskash*taa Refugee Harvesting network, which gleans backyard citrus trees to sweeten refugees’ lives.

Plus, it’s awesome to see the recipients harvesting alongside others. That experience and interaction will benefit both recipients and volunteers.

My one complaint: how about spelling out the significance of the group’s name? Mostly how cool it is that they get to have an asterisk in their name.

Other than that, it’s an enriching few minutes. As we see, not only does gleaning trees provide fruit for those in need, but it’s also a blast.
