City Fruit Honors Two Volunteers

On Friday, May 30,photo City Fruit celebrated founder Gail Savina on her last day as executive director.  In honor of her work and dedication to the urban harvest, the City Fruit board of directors created the Gail Savina Award for Outstanding Service.

This award recognizes distinguished individuals who have dedicated their time and energy to help City Fruit grow and prosper. Like Ms. Savina, awardees have made substantial contributions of their time and unique talents, and have a passion for the urban fruit harvest.  The award is given at the discretion of the City Fruit board of directors, when an individual’s contributions warrant such recognition.

The inaugural awards went to long-time City Fruit volunteers and employees: David Beeman, who is responsible for developing and maintaining City Fruit’s IT systems and database, and Tabitha Borchardt, who created the look and feel of everything you see with the City Fruit logo and name, including this website.

Congratulations to our awardees! Look for two upcoming posts on Dave and Tabitha, to learn more about their work with City Fruit!

    Thank you!
    I’m very much looking forward to this next phase of City Fruit, with our strong foundation laid by Gail Savina, and with an amazing new team to continue pushing things forward. I’m thankful for the opportunity to continue serving, creating clear and beautiful communications to facilitate City Fruit’s continuing harvest, stewardship and public outreach – until there is no more urban fruit being wasted in Seattle. Thank you to everyone out there who gives, joins, volunteers or supports City Fruit, urban gleaning, or any cause for social justice. It takes all of us together to make amazing community happen.
