Volunteer Information

Volunteer at the Real Life Fruit Orchard and Garden

 

Each year we harvest a wide variety of produce in our Orchard and Vegetable Garden.  Each variety has a Team Leader who studies publications on plant care, organizes group project days, and trains other volunteer team members.

If you are interested in volunteering, please review Volunteer Teams for a brief description of each team and what would be involved in volunteering. Then go to Contact Us, and share how you would like to serve. Someone will contact you to discuss the next steps.

 

U-Pick Berry Patch

 

The U-Pick Berry Patch typically opens during the first week of June. This is a great activity for families looking for something fun and free to do!  You have the opportunity to pick fresh fruit for the client families we serve at Real Life Center and to take some home for yourself.
