Professional Home Economist and Author, Getty Stewart explores the variety, bounty and beauty of prairie fruit. Learn about how a volunteer organization, Fruit Share, connects homeowners who have surplus fruit in their backyard with volunteers who pick that fruit and share it equally between homeowners, volunteer pickers and community groups who can use fruit. Getty will also share some of her favourite recipes from her recently released Prairie Fruit Cookbook. The book is the definitive resource for harvesting, preserving and preparing 11 different prairie fruits.
