Maintenance Gleaning for All, by Celia Hurvitt

A few weeks ago while thinning beets at Jon Hyk’s garden, I was introduced to the term “maintenance gleaning.” While supporting the farmer’s need to create more space for a row of beets to grow, we thinned out the smaller plants, harvesting beet greens for the local Bucksport Community Concerns Food Pantry. 
The Gleaning room filled with beet greens from our day at Jon Hyk’s garden.
