Foraging in Bonny Doon

I put a call out on Facebook on any available fruit in Bonny Doon for the barter of one of our tarts. Shortly afterwards I received messages from our neighbors with phone numbers and the types of fruit available. With a ladder and containers for picking, I embarked the following day on the trip to meet these gracious hosts together with my family.

It was a true privilege to see how beautifully and fully people live up here! All the pretty wooden houses and the well-attended gardens. I felt so lucky to be living in the community with such generous and kind people. We came home loaded not only with beautiful Bonny Doon-grown fruit but also brimming with the appreciation for the great community spirit and hospitable neighborliness.I hope that the tarts made by Empire Grade Purveyors compliments their gardening efforts.
