Volunteer and U-Pick Information

U-Pick 4 Others Blueberry Patch

The Harvest for Real Life Orchard U-Pick 4 Others 2021 Season has begun!

When you sign up to help us pick blueberries, you are not only investing time to make a difference in the life of your neighbors who struggle to afford fresh produce, but you will be equally blessed by the experience! The serene orchard provides a source of mental therapy for those who volunteer, not to mention time to connect with friends and family as you pick berries. This is a wonderful opportunity to teach about serving others to children and teen agers while feeling renewed by the fresh air and the beauty of the orchard. All the produce harvested from the orchard and garden go to serve the families who visit the Real Life Center Bread Room.

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.  We look forward to our 2021 U-Pick 4 Others season!

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.
