Got Fruit? Donate or Harvest Fresh Fruit this Summer

The Community Fruit Tree Harvest, a project of Solid Ground needs your help this summer – fall!
Be a Harvest Leader
Get to know your neighbors, share food with your community, and keep that beautiful, organic fruit in your neighborhood from going to waste!

Harvest Leaders coordinate1-2 harvests per week in their neighborhoods and make sure the fruit is donated to local food banks, shelters and meal programs. Mileage is reimbursed and fresh fruit abounds.

Please see theposition description for more details. We are especially looking for leaders in To apply, submit a volunteer application and a short statement of interest to [email protected] by Monday, July 9th.

Volunteer on a Crew
There are lots of ways to help out! We need volunteers who can do one or more of the following:

  • Scout trees ahead of time to see if the fruit is ripe (we need scouts especially in NE and Central Seattle neighborhoods)
  • Harvest at scheduled work parties or at an on-call basis
  • Provide garage space to store equipment (ladders, picking buckets and/or fruit)
  • Deliver fruit to food banks and meal programs

To get started, please fill out a volunteer application. We will be scheduling volunteer orientations later this month, so stay tuned.
