Welcome to Glean For Good – a socially responsible organization dedicated to fostering wholesome and restorative activities that connect people with nature and empower communities. At Glean For Good, we believe in the transformative power of gleaning, drawing inspiration from the ancient practice found in the Book of Esther.
In the Book of Esther, gleaning represents the act of gathering and collecting leftover resources from fields for the benefit of others. It symbolizes the value of selflessness and compassion, reflecting a world where those with abundance share their blessings so that those with little can have enough. This principle lies at the heart of Glean For Good's mission.
Our organization offers a diverse range of activities designed to inspire, educate, and bring joy to individuals and communities. By participating in our events and programs, you not only engage in fulfilling experiences but also contribute to the betterment of society.
Join us as we embark on exciting adventures such as soap-making, gardening, beekeeping, candle making, goat milking, and field trips. Experience the joy of witnessing nature's wonders up close while learning valuable skills that promote sustainability and self-sufficiency.
But our work doesn't stop there. At Glean For Good, we strongly believe in the power of community outreach and making a positive impact in the lives of those in need. That's why we organize farm-to-table dinners, where the bounty of our harvest is shared with those who require assistance. By coming together around a shared table, we create a sense of belonging and ensure that everyone has access to nourishing food.
Moreover, Glean For Good encourages the traditional practice of harvesting animals for the good of those in need. Through ethical and sustainable means, we ensure that no resource goes to waste. By embracing responsible practices, we honor the interconnectedness of all living beings and strive for a more compassionate world.
At Glean For Good, our motto guides everything we do: "That those with abundance would have no extra and that those with little would have enough." Through our efforts, we strive to bridge the gap between abundance and scarcity, cultivating a society where everyone's needs are met, and no one is left behind.
Join us on this meaningful journey towards a better future. Visit our website at gleanforgood.net to learn more about our initiatives, upcoming events, and how you can get involved. Together, let's glean for good and create a world of compassion, abundance, and shared prosperity.

Five Avoidable Mistakes When Maple Sugaring
We had just moved back to NY and I had several acres of woods behind the house. I wanted to make syrup, so I researched it on the internet. I had no taps or pails, so I bought copper tubing, cut in sections with a sharp angle. I drilled about 12 trees, stuck in the taps, and ran plastic tubing into empty 2 liter soda bottles. The sap ran fast and I had enough to boil in a couple days. I set up in a storage room with a Coleman stove and it took a ridiculous amount of time to reduce, but it tasted great.

Maple Syrup - Untapped Liquid Gold
Those of us outside of Wisconsin or Vermont may assume we have no chance of producing syrup without the abundance of sugar maples. After researching online and through the Minnehaha Conservation District, I found the native silver maples and box elders produce copious sap which is excellent for syrup.
Those with Abundance Have No Extra.
Those with Little Have Enough.
