Are your fruit trees overflowing thanks to El Nino’s bounty? Register your tree with The Urban Farmers, let them harvest the fruit and donate it in your name, but keep the tax write off! The fruit is donated to local hunger relief agencies, the service is free and the workers are fully insured. Plus, if you have a student in need of work credit, volunteering with The Urban Farmers can help rake in the points. For upcoming harvest times, visit http://goo.gl/vschsi.
