Join Village Harvest as we pick oranges from the last large orchard remaining in Silicon Valley. The oranges will be donated to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley to assist those in need.

This is a fun and rewarding outdoor opportunity that's great for adults of all ages, families, and youth (age 12 and up with their parent, 14 otherwise) and groups. For this harvest, we'll be using pole pickers to pick the fruit higher up in the trees.

Volunteers will be able to take home delicious fruit seconds from the harvest.

The exact address of the harvest will be sent out 1 to 3 days prior to the event.

Mission Statement

Sharing our gardens and talents to strengthen our community: Village Harvest brings together neighbors and community organizations to provide food for people in need, promote sustainable use of urban resources, and preserve our agricultural heritage and skills.

Description

Village Harvest is a volunteer organization in the San Francisco Bay Area that harvests fruit from homes and small orchards for local food agencies to assist people in need. We also provide education on fruit tree care, harvesting, and food preservation.

Since our founding in 2001 volunteers have picked and donated more than 4 million pounds to assist hundreds of thousands. Instead of going to waste abundant fruit becomes healthy food, and our volunteer harvests provide important life experiences for children and families, assistance for seniors, and community connection for a greater good.
