Harvest Sacramento: Last Big Citrus Harvest of the Season

After three months of weekly harvests, this Saturday's event at the McClatchy Park will be our last big event of the citrus season. We'd love for you to join us for the harvest. Details below ...


Community Citrus Harvest
McClatchy Park - corner of 34th St. and 5th Ave
Saturday April 5th, 9am - 1pm

REGISTER HERE - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/harvest-sacramento-mcclatchy-park-citrus-harvest-tickets-11121832701


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 - 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

Questions? Contact Dominic Allamano, Harvest Sacramento Coordinator, at [masked] or (916)[masked]
