Is there an age limit?

Children must be 6 years or older and accompanied by a parent/guardian. 

What are my transportation options?

Other than driving to the church parking lot, there is a BART station in Lafayette that is within 15 minutes walking distance of the church parking lot. 

Can I come without registering?

We prefer that you register so we can plan the harvest based on the size of the crew. If the event is not sold out and is not private, you are welcome to join without registering.
