Beach Clean Ups vs Backyard Harvests

Posted on Aug 3, 2016 by in Harvests, Volunteering | 0 comments


Put on your thinking cap.

What’s the difference between volunteering for beach clean up and harvesting backyard fruit?

I want to point out two important differences that matter a great deal to us.

Important Difference 1
No matter how many volunteers show up for the beach clean up, the work will go on. The more volunteers, the merrier.

Backyard fruit harvests are less flexible. We need a minimum number of people to start a harvest, and there is a limit to the number of people that can fit in a backyard.

Moral of the story. If you have registered to volunteer, we are counting on you. Please show up. If you must cancel, please do so as soon as you can. How to Cancel Your Free Ticket

Important Difference 2
For beach clean up the destination is not moving (to be accurate, the beach is moving but at geological speed!) on the other hand harvest teams are on the move going from backyard to backyard. Meaning if you are more than a few minutes late the group may be off to the races without you, and that’s no fun.

Got another difference? List it below.
