May Harvest Leader Training
Sat, May 20, 2017, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM MST
The Urban Farmers project, thanks to your support, is growing. Last year over 1,100 volunteers helped us harvest 147,000 pounds of fresh fruit for donation to hunger relief agencies. This year we hope to do more. To achieve this goal, we need volunteer Harvest Leaders.
Each harvest (typically organized on weekends) is lead by a Harvest Leader who manages a group of 8 to 12 volunteers. This team will visit 1 to 4 backyards and harvest several hundred pounds of fruit.
During this 3 hours training session, you will learn how to manage a harvest by helping volunteers :
- understand their roles and responsibilities
- how to use the equipment properly
- how to harvest and inspect the fruit
To learn more please visit Harvest Leader Training page.
This is a critical job, as harvests are not possible without a leader. Please tell your friends.
We look forward to working with you.
