January 7, 2012 Harvest Sacramento: East Sacramento and River Park Fruit Harvest
Saturday, January 7, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (PST)
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 put into groups of 5-10 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.
It is extremely helpful if each group has a pick-up truck or van to help transport materials and fruit, so please let us know if you are willing to allow use of your vehicle during the event for this purpose.
Children 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.
