Event Details

Learn more about Harvest Sacramento, a project of Soil Born Farms here.  Volunteers are needed throughout the year to help harvest fruit for donation to local food banks.

This is a fruit harvesting event. 

Volunteers will be placed into groups of 5-10 people with a trained harvest leader.  Each group will have a list of 3-5 tree sites (depending on the number and size of trees at each site) and will be provided with all necessary harvesting materials, including gloves, picker-poles, ladders, clippers and boxes.  Volunteers will carpool to each site and ideally be able to transport tools and harvested fruit between sites and back to our initial meeting location (see the note in bold below about vehicles).

NOTE:  We will be serving a simple lunch (a hearty vegetarian soup, bread and salad) after the harvest to share our experiences and meet fellow volunteers in other groups.  

It is extremely helpful if each group has a pick-up truck or van to help transport materials and fruit, so if you have this type of vehicle and are willing to allow the use of it, we would be grateful.

Young children (3-10 yrs old) are welcome to join us, but will be asked to focus their energy on sorting, packing and transporting the fruit.  Children under the age of 15 are required to have supervision from a parent/guardian, while youth 15-17 can attend without adult supervision, but must have a volunteer waiver signed by their parent/guardian.

Required:

  • Signed Soil Born Farms volunteer waiver (we will have copies available at the event or download from link above).
  • Closed toed shoes and clothing appropriate for the expected weather conditions of the day.

Recommended:

  • Sunglasses, gloves, bag/box to take home some fruit
  • Water bottle and light snack
