Harvest Rescue

Harvest Rescue

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.

The trees have reawakened and so have we here in the Harvest Rescue program. Please fill out our Volunteer Application Form if you would like to be a part of the harvesting, or fill out our Tree Registration Form to register your fruit tree for picking (nuts and berries are also welcomed). We will be picking on Tuesdays and Fridays until the end of October.

Consider joining our “Harvest Rescue Fruit Exchange”Facebook page to connect with tree owners and fellow pickers.
