Let it Shine!

After two miserable wet days, an oddity in California's April, the sun broke free for a beautiful Thursday glean. The going was a little slow outside of the post office, as many of the easily accessible oranges had been picked in previous gleans. With a little perseverance, however, we gleaned 114lbs of fruit!

Music made a second appearance and the octo-juicer made a first. We weren't lying when we labeled these oranges juicing oranges. We used casualties of gravity to make some delicious juice, such that nothing gleaned or knocked off went to waste. 

In total 7 gleaners attended and enjoyed an hour of fun. On route back to housing, we found a new tree outside of the Haas Center for Public Service and topped off an already weighty backpack.
