We pick fruit and share it!


Ready to get your hands dirty?

Volunteers are vital to the success of Not Far From The Tree’s programs. Each year, hundreds of amazing folks contribute their skills, energy and passion to help out in the field, at community events, and behind-the-scenes. We strive to create meaningful, action-oriented opportunities that will benefit the project, volunteers, and most of all, the communities we serve.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

Pick Fruit

In order to grow and sustain our fruit picking and sharing program, we ask all participants to become members and contribute just $10/year to cover a small part of the cost of the harvest. We couldn’t continue this work without a community of support – thank you!

Fruit picker membership registration will open June 2019 – stay tuned for announcements!

Become a Supreme Gleaner

What’s a Supreme Gleaner you ask? They’re specially trained volunteers who lead fruit picks, and transport fruit and equipment by cargo bike. Perfect for those who love bike-riding and meeting new people – or for those who want to take fruit-picking to the next level! As a Supreme Gleaner, your membership fee will be waived if you lead at least 1 pick per season.
