Volunteer

Thanks to volunteers like you, Calgary Harvest has picked hundreds of pounds of fruit in Calgary over the past 7 years. This community effort has diverted organic waste from the landfill, fed Calgarians and helped us all connect with local food.

Get involved and volunteer with us!

Committee Members: For the 2017 harvest season, we are looking to engage new committee members who are as excited about Calgary’s fruit as we are. Most of the responsibilities of committee members are behind the scenes -updating the website, sending out newsletters, supporting community coordinators, outreach and fundraising.

Community Coordinators: If you like to coordinate groups of people and most importantly get out and pick fruit, this could be the role for you. Get in touch and we’ll see if there are registered fruit trees in your neighbourhood.

Pickers: This is all about getting out and picking fruit. Sign up below to receive information about picks for the upcoming season. Once you hear about a pick you can choose to sign up or not. If you sign up, all you have to do is show up, pick fruit and take it home!

Harvest season doesn’t really get going until the end of August and really picks up in September and the beginning of October. Once you sign up, you will be added to our 2017 Volunteer list and will receive more information closer to the beginning of harvest season.

We hope that you can join us this year!

Thanks for your interest!
