Learn how to coordinate and lead neighborhood fruit harvests in your community!
Harvest Sacramento volunteers harvest excess fruit from from neighborhood trees for donation to local residents and food access agencies, connecting the immense bounty of the urban food forest to those in need.
Our group leaders engage volunteers in fun, inspiring, and productive experiences that meaningfully contribute to the wellbeing of local communities, enhancing food security, reconnecting residents and the land together, and cultivating the foundations for a renewed community food system, which we call the edible city.
This training will include both "classroom" and hands-on "field" experiences that will help prepare you to coordinate and lead small harvests in your neighborhood, as well as to lead a harvest group at one of our big citrus season events next year.
You’ll also learn more about the broader food system work of Soil Born Farms and that of our collaborative network of urban agriculture and food access partners who are working together to transform food access in the Sacramento region.
Join our region wide volunteer community and growing network of neighborhood harvest groups, and help us realize more of the potential of the Sacramento area neighborhoods to provide fresh fruit to families in need today, while we grow the foundation of long term healthy communities.
TRAINING DATE - Saturday, December 10th, 9:30am - 1pm
