Share the Harvest!
If you care for a fruit tree and want to share the extra fruit, follow the steps below to get help with the harvest and make it count in the Great Seattle Fruit Harvest.
*As of July 31st we are at capacity for new tree registration and authorization for 2018! We encourage you to still register your tree to get priority harvest help for next harvest season. If you still have an abundance of fruit to share, we can still help via the U-Pick Harvest Box program.
Step 1: Become a Member
In order to grow and sustain the Great Seattle Fruit Harvest, we ask all participants to become members and contribute just $25/year to cover a small part of the cost of the harvest.* We couldn't continue this work without a community of support. There are lots of other great membership benefits to use all year round, make sure to check them out!
Step 2: Register Your Tree!
Fill out the form below to create a profile for your tree in our system. If you have ever registered your tree in the past, you are good to go!
Step 3: Authorize the Harvest
Got your trees registered already? Members must re-authorize every year and authorized trees by July 31st will have first priority during the harvest season! The "Harvest Authorization Survey" will come to you directly via email in late April each year. This survey let's us know who needs harvest service help! While you wait, make sure your membership is up-to-date!
Harvest services are available to all residences within the Seattle city limits. Learn more about the harvest help now available to some residents in S. King County as part of the 2018 Harvest for All expansion .
Step 4: Make it Count, DIY!
Already picking and sharing your own fruit? Grab some harvest supplies at your local tool library, contact [email protected] to schedule a pickup if you've got extra fruit to share and then enter your success numbers into the DIY Harvest Survey (link coming soon).
