A Very Fruity Idea

Our cities are filled with trees, and the vast majority of those trees produce edible fruits. -[1]-. But with no one to collect and process them, most simply fall to the ground and rot, wasting a potentially excellent source of nutrition.

One new organization wants to change that. -[2]-. Fresh From The Tree is a non-profit group that aims to collect as much fruit as possible from the city's trees, and then make it into delicious snacks that can be sold at low prices to local residents.

"We have been doing a survey of the locations of all the fruit trees in town," says co-founder Michaela Anderson. "Once we have identified a promising tree, we contact the homeowners and ask if we can pick the fruit for them. -[3]-. They usually don’t have time to manage it themselves."

After the volunteers collect the fruit, they give half of it to the owners of the residence, and keep the other half to turn into fruit pies, jams, sorbets, and other tasty but healthy desserts. The group only has a handful of volunteers at the moment but are hoping to recruit more in the coming months. -[4]-. They are also negotiating with the city to collect fruit from trees on government property.

37. What is the article mainly about?
38. What does Fresh From The Tree do with the fruit it collects?
39. According to the article, what do homeowners receive from Fresh From The Tree?
40. In which of the positions marked [1], [2], [3], and [4] does the following sentence best belong? "Most of the residents accept the offer with pleasure."

To: Margaret Atkins
From: Lawrence Devine
Subject: Meeting
Date: October 6

Dear Ms. Atkins,

I just wanted to confirm the details that were discussed at the marketing meeting you called this morning. Following your instructions, additional funds for market research will be allocated to the only department whose sales performance in September declined. Also, it was agreed that we should continue promoting the categories that showed an increase in sales. As for watches and jewelry, you want us to conduct surveys to learn what specific items customers want most. Since profit margins for those items are high, you indicated that the company may wish to enlarge the selection in that department next year. Please let me know if this covers everything you requested or spoke about at the meeting so that I don't overlook anything. Once I hear from you, I will discuss this with the rest of the marketing staff. We can present a tentative plan when we meet with you again next week.

Thanks,

Lawrence Devine

Marketing associate
