Harvest Sacramento: Colonial Heights Citrus Harvest

Learn more about Harvest Sacramento, a project of Soil Born Farms - www.soilborn.org/harvestsacramento/. Volunteers are needed throughout the year to help harvest fruit for donation to local food banks.

This is a fruit harvesting event.

Volunteers will be placed into groups of 5-10 people with a trained harvest group leader. Each group will receive a list of 3-5 tree sites to harvest, and will be provided with all necessary harvesting materials, including gloves, picker-poles, ladders, clippers and boxes.

Volunteers will carpool to each site and ideally be able to transport tools and harvested fruit between sites and then back to our initial meeting. It is extremely helpful if each group has a pick-up truck or van to help transport materials and fruit, so if you have this type of vehicle and are willing to allow the use of it, we would be grateful.

LUNCH: We will be serving a simple lunch (a hearty vegetarian soup, bread and salad) after the harvest to share our experiences and meet fellow volunteers from the other harvest groups.

YOUTH: Young children (3-10 yrs old) are welcome to join us, but will be asked to focus their energy on sorting, packing and transporting the fruit. Children under the age of 15 are required to have supervision from a parent/guardian, while youth 15-17 can attend without adult supervision, but must have a volunteer waiver signed by their parent/guardian.

Required:
Signed Soil Born Farms volunteer waiver (we will have copies available at the event or download one here - http://soilborn.org/images/stories/PDFs/volunteer_waiver.pdf)
Closed toed shoes and clothing appropriate for the expected weather conditions of the day.

Recommended:
Sunglasses, gloves, bag/box to take home some fruit
Water bottle and light snack
