Volunteer at the Orchard

Our mother orchard is in El Sobrante just east of Richmond.  This is where our mother fruit trees live. They produce some fruit, and raw material for more trees.

It's time to plant some trees! We have a goal of getting 500 trees and 500 shrubs in the ground this spring.  Any and every volunteer opportunity on the orchard between now an the end of July will very likely involve tree planting.

 

Please complete the volunteer form below including the dates AND TIMES that you plan to attend!

=============================================================

  We take a lunch for 30 minutes between sessions.  You can definitely sign up for both sessions and stay the whole day with us - we like that.

Please bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and a lunch if you plan to eat between working sessions.  Wear a hat, gloves, sturdy shoes and long pants.  There is poison oak on the property; while it is limited to certain areas (and we're working to remove it entirely) it is best to be covered for protection and know how to identify it.

TASKS ahead

  • Continue planting understory shrubs

  • Continue weeding existing plantings

  • Plan + Design solar system

  • Plan + design of future farm structures.
