About the Event
Help us with a final harvest and clean up of Martha Washington Orchard in order to get this orchard ready for the late fall/winter! Due to COVID-19 we will be taking extra precautions and the number of volunteers will be limited to five. Take a look at our COVID-19 Volunteer guidelines below before signing up. Please make sure to bring your mask and we will supply the pickers and necessary tools for the harvest and clean up all sanitized and ready to go! And like always come be prepared for rain or shine and dressed in clothes your comfortable in getting potentially a little dirty and closed toed shoes!

City Fruit Volunteer Guidelines for COVID-19

The wellbeing of our volunteers is of the utmost importance, and we only ask you to commit to volunteering if you are safely able to do so.

All volunteers must wear masks and gloves and practice six feet of distance from another at all times. We kindly ask that you bring your own mask and gloves. If you do not have access to these, we will have gloves and masks provided. To ensure the safety of our volunteers and staff you will only be able to participate if abiding to this guideline.

Are you healthy enough to volunteer?
Based on what the CDC considers high-risk conditions, you should probably not volunteer outside the home if any of these apply to you – for the safety of yourself and everyone around you:
If you currently have a cough, fever, or any respiratory illness
If you currently have a heart condition, lung disease, diabetes, or any other serious health condition,
If you are over the age of 65, older adults and those with chronic health conditions are discouraged from pursuing volunteer events at this time due to vulnerability to COVID-19.
If you or anyone in your household have been in close contact with anyone who is confirmed to have COVID-19

Please stay home if you are feeling under the weather, have had recent contact with anyone demonstrating Covid-19 symptoms, or if you yourself have experienced a dry cough, fever, or other Covid-19 symptoms within the last 14 days.

What City Fruit is doing to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers?
At all events City Fruit we will be asking ourselves the same questions and more! We will provide hand sanitizer and every tool will have been sanitized and cleaned according to CDC guidelines before and after each event. Each tool will be assigned to only one person for the event. We will be making sure that everyone stays at least six feet apart. The gloves provided will be washed before and immediately after use.

Thanks for reading this, we love you and look forward to seeing you out there!
