Description

It's never too early to start the spirit of giving this season! What better way to kick off the generosity by helping those in need. All hands on deck! Bring your family, friends, and fellow community members to help us pick fresh persimmons for the hungry.

Charlotte is a widow that has inherited an orchard of 810 persimmon trees loaded with 50,000+ pounds of fruit. She is not a farmer and wants to donate the fruit to hungry. When we visited her orchard and told her that we are not set up for harvests of this size, her eyes welled up and she said, "please come and harvest what you can. Last year 100,000 pounds of fruit went to waste and I used to cry at night knowing people needed the food,"

Please join us for a day of fun out in the country. We will have all the equipment that is necessary on site and will have snacks and water. Let's see what we can do to help Charlotte donate her fruit.

Please come prepared to be outdoors for 5 hours. Other items to consider are:

  • Personal water

  • Hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen

  • Gardening gloves

  • Gardening shears

FAQs

Is there an age limit?
Children must be at least 6 years old and accompanied by a parent/guardian.

What are my transportation options?
If you need flexibility you can drive to the harvest.

Can I come without registering?
We prefer that you register but if you decide to come by at the last minute, please do so. What we can't harvest that day will go to waste.
