Harvest Sacramento: Group Leader Training

Become a Harvest Group Leader with Harvest Sacramento!

Join our growing network of volunteers and help us make Sacramento an edible city!

Harvest Sacramento volunteers harvest excess fruit from local backyards and neighborhoods for donation to area food banks, connecting the 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.

As a group leader, you will:
- Lead groups of 5-10 volunteers during a harvest event
- Help your group pick fruit in a safe and enjoyable manner
- Maintain our high fruit quality standards
- Ensure the tree owner is provided with top-notch service

You do not need to have gardening or orcharding experience, nor the ability to lift heavy objects or climb ladders...you just need to enjoy working with people and have a desire to support your community.

This training will include both "classroom" and hands-on "field" experiences that will have you fully prepared to lead (or co-lead) volunteers during our upcoming citrus harvest season. This is a great way to get involved with Harvest Sacramento and your community in general. Many of our group leaders from past seasons continue to join us on a regular basis and are now helping coordinate harvesting activities in their own neighborhoods.

Join us at this training, or one of our other upcoming trainings, and you'll be ready to lead (or co-lead) volunteers during the upcoming citrus season and beyond!

Saturday, Nov. 16th, 10am - 2pm
Saturday, Dec. 7th, 10am - 2pm

Location: Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services Community Room, 3333 3rd Ave (3rd Ave & 33rd St)

    Hi Carrie, sorry to hear about the rib, but glad to know you're interested. We will have another training on Dec. 7th, and most likely another offering in late January or early February. We can also do training during harvest events and have you shadow an experienced group leader. If you want to help out, we want to make it possible for you.

    I really want to participate; however I broke a rib and am laid up for a few weeks. I will reconnect when I am able-bodied...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
