The Nelson Community Food Centre Harvest Rescue program gleans fresh produce, with the help of trained volunteers, from backyard gardens in the Nelson area and vegetables from nearby farms. This produce, that would otherwise go to waste, is then shared with people living on low incomes through the our Good Food Bank and other social service organizations.

Things are quiet with our Harvest Rescue program until trees begin to fruit.  If you have a fruit tree you’d like to register with us for picking (nuts and berries are also welcomed),  fill out our Tree Registration Form. 

While we all wait for the trees to blossom, consider joining our “Harvest Rescue Fruit Exchange” Facebook page to connect with tree owners and fellow pickers.
