Volunteering with the Okanagan Fruit Tree Project is a great way to get involved in the community and offers many perks:
Flexibility: No matter your schedule you can come and pick with us. We pick trees during the day, evenings, and weekends. Only have a hour or two to spare? No problem! Picks typically take 1 to 2 hours.
Health: Enjoy an opportunity for fresh air and sunshine! Picking fruit is also a gentle form of exercise.
Community Building: A fantastic way to meet like-minded people in your community while helping reduce food waste and hunger.
Share the Harvest: All volunteers are welcome to take home some fresh Okanagan fruit to enjoy.
Inclusion: Everyone is welcome! Our volunteers come from all walks of life: seniors, children, single parents, students, low income individuals, and more. We believe that each person brings value and beauty to this world, and we love seeing people come together while picking fruit.
We promote a safe and fun volunteer experience for everyone!
