Burrage Mansion Orange Harvest

Volunteers from Steps 4 Life, the U of R, Employment Community Options, and LDS Service Club helped Burrage grounds workers wash and sort this year's crop of super-delicious navel oranges from the Burrage Mansion groves. The oranges are harvested, washed, sorted and then given away to many Redlands children and charities, including the YMCA, Boys & Girls Club, Micah House, Family Services, the Blessing Center, food banks and homeless centers. There's lots of work over several week's time, but it's almost completed.... until the Valentias get ripe in another month or so, when harvesting starts all over again!
