Volunteer with City Fruit

City Fruit Volunteers give of their time in many ways to help support the mission of promoting the cultivation of urban fruit in order to nourish people, build community, and protect the climate. 

We love all of our volunteers, and would love to see you join us! There are many ways you can volunteer--from picking fruit, helping in an orchard or participating in the blog. To learn about these opportunities follow the link below to sign-up.
