LUSH Valley’s ever popular Fruit Tree Program is gearing up for another abundant season!
Since 2002, Lush Valley has operated this program which sends volunteers to fruit tree owners’ homes and harvests the fruit, leaving 1/3 to the owner, bringing 1/3 to Lush Valley for redistribution in the community and taking 1/3 home with them to enjoy. In the past 10 years we harvested over 35,000 pounds of fruit!
If you want to dedicate some time to being involved in an important food security tradition in the Comox Valley as well as have fun and take home some fruit, please join us for a Volunteer Orientation meeting at LUSH Valley Monday, July 20th at 7pm.
***If you have volunteered as a Fruit Tree Pick Leader in the past and are interested in doing so again we ask that you join us a bit earlier for a special brainstorming session and meet & greet at 6pm***
If you cannot attend the meeting, but you would still like to volunteer please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 250-331-0152
We are also always looking for homeowners who would like to share the bounty of their fruit trees with us! If you are interested please email email@example.com or call us at 250-331-0152 and we can arrange a time to have your trees gleaned.
