Volunteer and U-Pick Information

U-Pick 4 Others Blueberry Patch

Our U-Pick 4 Others season has been a success so far!  Unfortunately, we are having to postpone our picks for a few weeks to allow time for more berries to ripen on several of our bushes.

Please stay tuned to our website and social media for updates.  Thank you for being willing to pick fresh fruit for the client families we serve at Real Life Center and make a difference in the lives of many.

Volunteer with a Real Life Fruit Orchard and Garden Team

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.

How do I sign-up to volunteer to be on a Harvest for Real Life Fruit Orchard team?

If you are interested in volunteering with a Harvest for Real Life Fruit Orchard team, 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.  CLICK HERE to access the WAIVER and please return it to us before volunteering.
