Event description

Description

The citrus season is in full swing and there is an abundance of fruit clustered in neighborhoods where trees are loaded with oranges, lemons, tangerines and grapefruits. We need individuals, families, and groups help us harvest throughout Walnut Creek.

We will harvest fresh backyard fruit for donation to local soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters and the food bank. Typical harvests take about 3 hours and travel no more than 25 miles from the starting location. We will have all the necessary equipment, including buckets, picking-poles, ladders, clippers, and crates with us.

Please wear closed-toed shoes and clothing appropriate for the expected weather conditions of the day. Come prepared to be outdoors for 4 hours. Other items to consider are:

  • Water
  • Snack
  • Hat and Sunglasses
  • Gardening gloves
  • Brown bag to take some fruit home

FAQs

I have never been to a harvest. Can you give me an idea what to expect?
Here is a short video about what to expect when you volunteer with The Urban Farmers.

Introduction to The Urban Farmers

Is there an age limit?
Children must be 6 years or older and accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Can I come without registering?
No. Each harvest can accommodate a limited number of volunteers, and our insurance policy requires volunteers to provide emergency contact information and to review and accept the terms and conditions of the Release of Liability Agreement before attending a harvest.

Can I cancel my ticket after registration?
Yes. We understand things happen! We'd be grateful if you take a minute and cancel your ticket. It gives another volunteer the chance to join the harvest and allows us to plan the right amount of work for the expected volunteers.
