Featured Opportunities

 

Harvests

Before signing up for a harvest, please be sure that you and each person signing up has registered previously on the Volunteers page. If you have already registered as a volunteer you do not have to do so again. Sign up each person separately for harvests. To sign up for a harvest, click on the 'Sign up for harvest' button. If the regular roster is full you can add your name to a waiting list.

If more harvest assistants are needed, you can agree to spend a half hour of your harvest time helping the harvest leader. If you assist, you will still have time to pick produce for yourself and to donate.

Harvests offer an opportunity for families to work together in the outdoors, meet local farmers and gain a better understanding of where our food comes from. In a state with the highest rate of childhood hunger in the nation, harvests offer local growers a compassionate alternative to letting their crops go to waste and provide low-income families a way to gain self-sufficiency. Parents have an opportunity to teach their children to care for others.

The act of giving empowers.

Meet new friends

Harvests pull together a broad cross-section of the community representing diverse socioeconomic levels and ethnic groups. Hundreds of individuals primarily interested in sustainable lifestyles work alongside people who struggle with job loss and other economic challenges. Children are welcome at most harvests.
