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.

Come help get these carving pumpkins out of the fields and into homes that will LOVE them!

Please read all the way through the harvest info once you sign up to read the current food safety regulations that all harvesters must follow.

New feature: While you are waiting for new harvests to be posted, sign up for a new feature called My Salem Harvest page which will show all of your current signups, see harvest details and your complete harvest history. You will also be able to get on waiting lists without waiting for an email. To use this feature, you must first give yourself a password. Go to the Volunteer Update page to be sent a link where you can set the password and update your contact information.
