City Fruit Volunteers give their time in many ways to help support the mission of promoting the cultivation of urban fruit in order to nourish people, prevent food waste, and build community.
We love all of our volunteers, and would love to see you join us! There are many ways you can volunteer--from pruning, orchard clean ups, harvesting fruit to community outreach.

City Fruit Volunteer Guidelines for COVID-19
The wellbeing of our volunteers is of the utmost importance, and we only ask you to commit to volunteering if you are safely able to do so.
- All volunteers must wear masks and gloves, and practice six feet of distance from one another at all times. We kindly ask that you bring your own mask and gloves, or let us know in advance if you do not have access to them. To ensure the safety of our volunteers and staff you will only be able to participate if abiding to this guideline.
- If you currently have a cough, fever, or any respiratory illness, have a heart conditin, lung disease, diabetes, or any other serious health condition, volunteering in group may not be suitable for you.
- Please stay home if you or anyone in your household have been in close contact with anyone who is confirmed to have COVID-19, or if you yourself have experienced a dry cough, fever, or other Covid-19 symptoms within the last 14 days.
What City Fruit is doing to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers
We will provide hand sanitizer, and every tool will have been sanitized and cleaned according to CDC guidelines before and after each event. Each tool will be assigned to only one person for the event. We will be making sure that everyone stays at least six feet apart. The gloves provided will be washed before and immediately after use. The number of volunteers will be limited to five, but have no fear there wil be a waitlist created. So please sign up because people often cancel at last minute.
Thank you for following our safety guidelines, and we look forward to seeing you out there!
