Food Forward is adding a second day of fruit picking this weekend in Montecito.  For more info visit





We are happy to say we are almost full for FRUITSTOCK this Saturday in Montecito – a lush 150 tree orchard awaits us!

We are so happy in fact, that in the spirit of Woodstock, we have added a second day to our end of summer fruit harvesting celebration.  No mud or hippies, well maybe a few hippies….

The second day, Sunday the 30th will be in Moorpark on a 40+ acre citrus & avocado ranch.  We will be meeting here for a few hours Sunday morning (10AM to noonish) to help bag an insane grapefruit crop which has been donated to us – the trick being we must bag everything we can take Sunday or else it will be trashed.  Yes, trashed! Last weekend 4 of us bagged over 4000 lbs (no picking required!) here – all which went to feed LAs hungry.

If you can join us at this special event – about 30 minutes from the Valley in beautiful farm country, we’d love to have you.  Kids welcome! Please  EM to confirm and get address/details

Otherwise, we have about 4-5 spots left for Saturday (light lunch provided by FF, and potluck BBQ following the pick)  

Hope to see you this weekend.
