​Unlike pots set to boil, trees bear fruit even when they're being watched, and around these parts, when they do, the watchers at SF Glean swoop in like friendly pigeons of sustainability to clean up the excess.

SF Glean is a volunteer group dedicated to harvesting fruit and nuts from city trees (if necessary, with approval from the trees' owners) and donating the salvaged bushels and pecks to area nonprofits. If you're keen on participating, download the fliers, and join the Google group.
