The Talley family, owners of Talley Farms, have always been invested in the well-being of our community. Their generosity is truly overwhelming. Over the past month, GleanSLO brought several groups of students and community members out to glean nearly 5,000 pounds of beets! Students from Liberty High School in Paso Robles and Mission College Prep High School in SLO were two of the groups who labored in the fields. And we mean it when we say “labored,” they have the blisters to prove it! GleanSLO is grateful for the many people that came together to make these gleans possible.
Additional thanks to Connie Tran at KSBY for featuring a story about GleanSLO during one of the beet gleans:
