Urban Fruit Gleaning – Our Article in Good.is Magazine


Hi…This is my personal recipe and family blog site, but I am also involved with a fruit gleaning project in Riverside, CA picking neighborhood fruit from overflowing fruit trees and donating the fresh fruit to the local Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank and others in need. Our name is Inland Empire Urban Fruit Harvesting.

Good.is Magazine wrote a Food Grows on Trees article on groups who are gleaning for donations. We just happen to be one of them. Please check out the article and spread the word….

Blood of Nature


We have been receiving our organic fruits and vegetables from CSA – Community Supported Agriculture (Inland Empire) on a weekly basis.  Not only have we gotten a beautiful arrangement of vegetables, greens and fruits, it’s different every week. We are supporting our local organic farmers and lighten our footprint on this earth while doing our part to help the community in the ways we feel best fits our lifestyle.

In these boxes, we have receive lots of greens, beets, wild spinach and broccoli rage. I have not yet figured out how to cook all these items, so we have decided to start juicing again. Every morning, I pull out a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs, and juice them into a beautiful drink to start our day.

Today’s Juice was the BEST I have mad yet, Really, so good, it tasted like it was the blood of nature. Here are the ingredients:
