Village Harvest is a volunteer powered organization born out of the passions, vision, and commitment of everyone who has gotten involved.  Talents of all kind are needed and directly contribute to our ability to strengthen our community.

There are many ways you can help individually, with your organization, or with a circle of friends: backyard fruit harvesting, making preserves, sharing your gardening expertise, enhancing our web site and technology, and providing expertise and support.  In most cases no ongoing commitment is needed, just a few hours picking fruit outdoors with other talented and interesting people while making a difference for thousands.

To help us match your interests and location to our events, fill out our Volunteer Registration form, and then sign yourself up for specific upcoming events of interest found in our Newsletter or our Events page. We have regular Community Harvest Teams serving homes in the South Bay and Peninsula, Orchard Harvests, and Neighborhood Harvests.

Visit the Volunteer Opportunities page for information on specific roles.
