My daughter joyfully harvesting apples for the hungry.
Food Pantries and Hunger Relief organizations struggle to meet the demands of the poor economy. Sometimes the person struggling is the FAMILY NEXT DOOR. Together, we can SHARE THE LOVE. SHARE FRUIT. Locally grown fruits and vegetables are an abundant harvest, yet a real luxury for most on a limited food budget. Perhaps you know a family struggling with unemployment or a health crisis. Let's boost nutrition to our neediest neighbors! Please, I ask that you take action today. Join me. Find a tree. Share Fruit.
In Concord, California, donating fruit from Summer 2014 harvests is easy! Apples, peaches, plums, oranges, lemons, the summer fruit is endless.
Do you have a fruit tree? Do you wish to donate fruit?
Register your fruit tree before it is too late!

We are regular customers of Jamba Juice, so a little perk now and again is a fun way to start the day! Veggie Harvest™, Citrus Kick™, Tropical Greens™? Yum. My favorite is the Tropical Greens, though I'd happily sip all three . . .
Concord Community Pool IS open this week, Thursday, August 28th and Friday, August 29th for Recreational Public swim until 4pm, based on minimum attendance of 30 swimmers. I believe if this were better promoted, more people would be out swimming! Temps are in the 90s.
Phone Concord Community Pool to confirm open times: (925) 671-3474 for Thursday and Friday.
For most school children, Wednesdays are an early dismissal. I took three children to the pool today and supported our Concord, California Pool with our admission fees. This photo shows how empty the pool was. With a little notice, an after school trip IS possible. Such a beautiful pool. How many millions of gallons of sparkling water fill this underutilized Olympic Size pool?
Public Recreational Swim is still available on weekends thru September 2014.

We've always enjoyed a quick educational self-guided ranch tour whenever we feel like taking a step back in time...a stone's throw from the local Wal-Mart, yet many families rarely stop to meander through the tranquil grounds of the John Muir Historic House Property.
Families can explore the historic fruit and nut tree orchards year round. Ava reports the grapes are soooo good. John Muir House in Martinez, California is a fantastic place to have a picnic under beautiful shade trees, collect a few bay leaves, too. Free Admission every day! There are Family Days, Full Moon Walks, Kids Programs and Camps.
Saturday evenings in Summer and Fall 2014 bring Camp Fire Programs: July 26th, August 30th, September 27th, October 25th, 2014. We often forget the local gems in our own back yard. Seize the day! Roast marshmallows by moonlight. Have fun making memories.
