City Fruit’s Phinney-Greenwood group is looking for volunteer pickers to help harvest fruit from neighborhood trees to donate to those in need. Plums, pears, and apples are starting to ripen and City Fruit volunteers are already picking half a dozen trees a week, with many more to come.
It usually only takes an hour or so to pick a tree. Picking fruit and delivering it to our donation partners is a small gift with big rewards, not to mention it’s really fun.
Please contact Jen Mullen to find out more about helping to pick fruit in Phinney and Greenwood, or to donate the bounty of your own fruit trees to neighborhood food banks, soup kitchens and community organizations!
City Fruit will have a volunteer orientation on Tuesday, Aug. 18, from 5:30- 6:30 p.m. at the Greenwood Library at 8016 Greenwood Ave. N. Please RSVP if you plan attend the orientation.
