Pear Harvest Omega Orchard Volunteer Opportunity

Sunday, August 07, 2016, 08:00am - 11:00pm

Omega Orchard in Ridgefield, WA has a 250 tree organic pear orchard that Urban Abundance will be harvesting to bring into the Clark County Food Bank!

It takes around 30min to harvest a tree so we need 125 volunteer hours to harvest this Bartlett pear orchard. We have set up two shifts of 3 hours over four days, 8-11 and 6-9, August 7, 8, 9, 10. Just need 6 people per shift and we're golden, 5 tons of organic pears into the Clark County emergency food system.

Volunteers will be offered a portion of the harvest, so bring a bag to bring home your bounty. The majority of the harvest goes into the Clark County Food Bank. From there, the pears will be distributed to Food Pantries around Clark County, and given through emergency food boxes to those in-need.
