Urban Farmers Harvest Fruit

Urban Farmers is new non-profit organization that harvests backyard fruit for the needy. Tree owners register their tree with Urban Farmers, who will come when the fruit is ripe, leave as much fruit as the owner requests, and take the rest to the food bank or a local charity. If you prefer to pick your own tree, they will pick up your excess fruit. They request you register at least three weeks before harvest.

They are also looking for volunteers to harvest and for many office jobs, so if you know anyone that’s interested, let that person know.

For more information, visit their website at http://www.theurbanfarmers.org/.  You can also follow the link in the links section of this blog.
