Garden to Table volunteers picking fruit

About

Are you interested in engaging with the local food system in a fun way? Join Garden To Table's Neighborhood Harvest Program (NHP) as we harvest fruit trees from San Jose's backyards! We will meet and carpool to 1-2 homes, where we harvest several hundred pounds of fruit ranging from oranges and avocados to apricots and figs .

The NHP is cultivating San Jose's urban food forest by allowing residents to share their excess fruit with local food programs, in order to address food waste and a lack of affordable healthy food options. These events are a great way to build community, learn about the challenges facing our local food system, and make new friends.

Age minimum (with adult): 10
Age minimum (with volunteer waiver signed by parent/guardian if 16 or 17): 16
