Kitsap Harvest Seeks Volunteers

In keeping with our commitment to “take good care of the Earth,” Cedars Green Sanctuary highlights this announcement from Kitsap Harvest, a county-wide program focused on gleaning and other ways to reduce food waste in our community.

Kitsap Harvest is a program that organizes volunteers to pick surplus fruits and veggies from farms, yards, and gardens across Kitsap County. This activity is called “gleaning.”

Kitsap Harvest needs your help to pick more produce? Both individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer. Gleaning is a great team-building opportunity for your business, organization, or family.

It’s easy to volunteer at a gleaning event. Browse the Volunteer Opportunities and complete the Volunteer Application at VolunteerKitsap. Once you are approved, Kitsap Harvest will e-mail you a list of gleaning events you can attend.

You can join one or more gleaning events. They usually are held in the mornings and last for a few hours. Children are welcome to attend. (Bonus: volunteers can choose to take home a portion of the harvested produce!
