We will meet at the teaching garden for instruction and then drive to local orchards. All orchards will be within a ten minute drive of the Urban Harvest Teaching Garden.

This is a modified, in person volunteering opportunity. Detailed instructions and educational resources will be sent to you upon registration. You will meet with our nonprofit partner directly for the service opportunity onsite. A COVID waiver from both Generation SERVE and our nonprofit partner will be required. Please be sure to review our Generation SERVE waiver HERE and return your signed copy to leah@generationserve.org.


This activity is best for ages 13 and up with a parent or guardian.


Join us to help Urban Harvest with its Fruit Tree Festival celebration. Orchards across the East End have been selected for care and maintenance. Each orchard is a learning community space that will greatly benefit from a day of pruning, cleaning, and overall orchard maintenance.
