The Perennial Plate: Episode 64


The Perennial Plate Episode 64: California Gleaning from Daniel Klein on Vimeo.

Northern California is a bountiful area.  So bountiful that there are often leftovers.  This is usually the case with most farms.  In order to make way for bad yields, bad weather, and unexpected disasters, (or just to make sure they have enough to satisfy their customers), most farms will end up with more than they can sell.  What happens to all that extra produce?  In the case of Healdsburg California, an organization called Farm to Pantry picks it, packs it up, and delivers it to various locations “in need.”  It’s selfless, necessary, and wonderful.  Watch this video to follow the food from harvest to Redwood Gospel Mission.
