I can't see any harvests!
You need to register & fill out the "Volunteer Sign Up & General Liability Release" form to access harvest opportunities. Click "Register" in the upper right hand corner of this page to access it. After you fill that out, you'll be able to access harvests as well as set your contact preferences & availability on your volunteer profile.
Can I bring my kids?
Absolutely! Just filled out the "Minor Consent Form" located on the top toolbar of this site for each minor you want to bring along.
Where do I get tools?
Pole pickers are located at 417 NE 175th Ave. Walk up on the R side of the driveway past the compost bins and find the pickers by the side of the house. Do take an extension pole also, as some trees are deceptively taller than they seem.
Where can I get boxes?
Clark County Food Bank is experiencing a shortage of food crates this year and are NOT able to share crates with Urban Abundance this year. Try sourcing produce boxes from your local grocery store. WINCO has been very helpful and ok to just ask any staff member restocking at the produce section if there is empty boxes we can take, without needing to call prior.
How do I donate the fruit I picked?
Clark County Food Bank is accepting food donations, and fresh food is always high in demand! Due to COVID, however, they're not allowing anyone inside their warehouse. Drive up to their warehouse doors and wait for someone to come out and greet you.
Donation hours are 8am-12noon and 1pm-3.30pm Monday through Friday.
Please sort your fruit carefully before donating- the food bank can only accept unblemished (no bruising, no bugs) produce of decent eating size. Also taste the fruit before you pick it- if you don't want to eat it, neither will the recipients of the food bank. All delicious and nutritious 'seconds' are for YOU, your neighbors and your friends!!!
I can't see the harvest address
If the harvest is on private property, the address won't be viewable until AFTER you sign up for it. The general location will be listed, but the address and other property owner's info will be emailed to you after you sign up.
Do I need to contact fruit tree owners before I go pick?
Yes! Except where noted in the event description that it's not necessary.
I have a question that's not answered in the FAQ.
