Harvest Local Fruit!

Soil Born Farms is actively engaged in our community to prevent food waste and sustain local fruits.

Soil Born Farms connects with these households and sends volunteers into the community to harvest fruit, and you can help! All materials are provided to volunteers, who will be assisted by a harvest leader, all they need is transportation. Volunteers age 3-15 are welcome to join with parental supervision, and will be given age-appropriate tasks. Volunteers age 15-17 are welcome to help with signed parental permission.
