Yam Jam 2017
October 6, 7, 14, 21, 28, and November 4
Yam Jam is the Society of St. Andrew annual sweet potato gleaning, spanning 5 weekends in October and November. Last year, 1,218 volunteers gleaned 335,723 pounds of sweet potatoes from 3 farms! The sweet potatoes get distributed to feeding agencies all over North Carolina. This year, we are hoping to glean more than ever to provide for our neighbors in need.
This year, we will be harvesting at First Fruits Farm on October 6 and 7! This is Jason and Tay Brown’s farm in Louisburg, where they grow sweet potatoes specifically to donate to feeding agencies.
Once you register, watch for two emails: one with general information on the Tuesday before your Saturday gleaning, and another on Friday before your gleaning with the exact location of the field. We will not know the exact field locations until the week of each event!
