Food Waste: The Harvest is Just the Beginning

Blog

Harvest. It feels like an old word, something people used to do centuries ago. Kind of like blacksmithing and spinning thread. It also feels like Autumn, mainly because the closest I’ve ever come to harvesting anything is picking apples in October in the mountains of Virginia.
