Harvests and Other Events

This calendar is updated by Friday of each week for the following week's harvest events- check back for more each week!


Before signing up for an event, 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. Each adult must sign up separately for events. To sign up for an event, click on the 'Sign up for this event' button. Once you sign up, you will receive a confirmation letter with the exact address and detailed information about the event. If the roster is full, your name will be added to a waiting list and you will receive an email if anyone ahead of you cancels their spot.

Move the mouse over harvests on the calendar to see details and a sign up link below the calendar. Green harvests have roster openings left; yellow harvests have a waiting list. If you are using a smart phone you may have to scroll the top half of the page to see everything.
