April Food Day
As we approach the Spring, join us for a virtual celebration while supporting the Gleaners' key programs for the coming season. Interact with our community, learn more about our journey to secure a new facility, and more! Our April Food Day online fundraising auction will also be launched during the first week of April.
Tickets for this virtual gathering are donation-based. Those who contribute will receive cocktail ingredients for the evening and a seed planting kit delivered to their door—to be used during the event!
Secure your tickets today!
Date: Sunday, April 11th
We host volunteer gleaning trips and food packing projects throughout the year. Our safety practices have been carefully revamped this year in consideration of COVID-19. Please visit our Volunteer Page to review our updated health & safety protocols and register to volunteer!
Join us on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for gentle and choice-filled yoga classes with Tess Tomlinson!
What is yoga to gleaning? This is a question we have been exploring at BAG since staff started adding moments of practice together after strenuous days of harvesting, loading and leading trips. As the years passed and circumstances changed, BAG wanted to freely extend the opportunity to anyone with interest, so that together and with more voices, we could still explore that question. Yoga has a far broader scope than practicing poses. Yoga philosophy speaks to practices and ethical frameworks like non-violence, truthfulness and energy management that we can engage with internally and with others to support sustainable life for all. Sound a little like gleaning?
We invite you to explore ideas, effort, sensation and ease in class, in the comfort of your home, with or without your camera on, whether you've stepped on a yoga mat before or not.
Perhaps one day after yoga, you'll find yourself on a volunteer harvest— and our hope is that the experiences are made mutually richer for having done some of each.
