How it works

So, how does the harvest work?

Revelstoke Fruit Share lets fruit tree owners connect with interested fruit pickers so that surplus fruit can be harvested, shared and enjoyed.

Fruit tree owners list their fruit and fruit pickers select which fruit they’d like to pick. Pick details are made between fruit owners and fruit pickers through email. On the agreed upon date and time, the fruit gets picked and shared between fruit owners, volunteer pickers and community groups that accept local fruit.

Fruit tree owners can also work directly with The Gleaning Project team to request a full tree glean.

You can learn more about what steps pickers, tree owners, and volunteers take.
