Harvests

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.
