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.

A harvest of a few trees in a large pear orchard. The trees with fruit are heavily loaded with perfect fruit, but are scattered in the orchard. At least half the fruit will require ladders to pick. We WILL have Orchard Ladders to use if you do not have one. All height ladders are sufficient but plan to use caution as the ground is soft and often sloped. Wheel Barrows or wagons will also be useful as a significant amount of walking will be required. Children under 14 are NOT advised due to the terrain. This is not a stroller friendly harvest.
