Looking to take on a bit more responsibility? Pick Leaders are responsible for leading picks, transporting equipment, ensuring safe and fun practices, and sharing the backyard harvest with one of our Community Partners. Previous experience as a Fruit Picker is recommended but not required, and training is provided.

Why Become a Pick Leader?
It doesn’t get more “hands on” than this! Help provide local and nutritious fruit to deserving community organizations and gain the deep satisfaction of diverting food waste to those who need it. It’s also an amazing opportunity to lead a team, learn new skills, meet great people and eat delicious, fresh fruit!
What Is Expected of Me?
Pick Leaders are asked to commit to 4-5 picks per season. A typical season runs from late June to October. After a training and orientation session, you will receive emails from our Coordinator with details about upcoming picks. Simply email back when you can lead a pick as it suits your schedule.
