Harvest Neighborhood Fruit With Lettuce Link

By master · July 15th, 2011 · No Comments

The fruit will soon be ripening on neighborhood trees and Lettuce Link wants to make sure none of it goes to waste.

Lettuce Link is looking for trees to harvest and volunteers to pick the fruit.

From the Lettuce Link website:

There are lots of ways to help out! We need volunteers who can do one or more of the following:

  • “Scout” trees ahead of time to see if the fruit is ripe
  • Harvest at scheduled work parties
  • Be on-call to harvest fruit in their neighborhoods
  • Provide garage space for storing ladders, picking buckets, and/or fruit
  • Deliver fruit to food banks and meal programs
  • The volunteer application is available here (.doc) and 90-minute volunteer orientations are on Tuesday, July 19th at 6 p.m. at the Douglass-Truth Library (2300 E Yesler Way) and on Thursday, July 21st at 6 p.m. at Solid Ground Wallingford (1501 N 45th St.)

    To RSVP, or if you’d like to volunteer but can’t make it to an orientation, please contact Molly at or 206-694-6751.
