Volunteer harvesting produce

Every year, thousands of pounds of fruit fall to the ground and rot, creating a public health and waste disposal problem. At the same time, thousands of residents can’t afford organic produce. The Community Fruit Tree Harvest provides a win-win solution.

Solid Ground organizes volunteers, delivers fruit to food banks, meals programs, shelters and senior centers, and provides information, workshops and assistance on caring for fruit trees to tree owners.
