2022-2023 UF/IFAS Extension Master Gardener Citrus Picking

It is winter and the temperatures are dropping, the holiday season is upon us, and citrus across the state is ripening on the trees. In this season of giving, have you ever noticed your backyard orange trees produce just too much fruit for you to eat? If that’s the case, consider having the UF/IFAS Clay County Master Gardeners help by gleaning your extra fruit and giving it to charity.

Every year, the UF/IFAS Clay County Master Gardeners get their picking poles and baskets and go into the community to glean citrus for local charities.

Oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, anything will work; just as long as you have extra that you are willing to share, we are willing to come pick it and distribute it. If you are interested and a resident of Clay County, contact the UF/IFAS Extension Clay County Office at (904)284-6355 or email mdalters@ufl.edu and we will have a Master Gardener contact you to schedule a date and time that works for you.
