VANCOUVER FRUIT TREE PROJECT
What is a Pick Leader?
“Pick Leaders” help volunteers get the fruit from the tree to the charity! They arrange equipment and transportation details (with MODO car co-op, your own vehicle, or by bike), and lead a safe and fun pick with volunteers. Then they deliver the fruit to the community partner.
Why become a Pick Leader?
Help contribute to food security and make a difference in your community. This position is at the heart of the Fruit Tree Project, without Pick Leaders we couldn’t do it. Gain the deep satisfaction of diverting food from waste to those who need it. It’s also an amazing opportunity to lead a team, pick up some skills, meet great people and eat fresh fruit while you do it!
What is expected of me?
Pick Leaders are asked to commit to 4-5 picks per season. The season is July-October.
How does it work?
After a training and orientation session, you will receive emails from the coordinator with details about upcoming picks that are in need of a Pick Leader. Simply email back when you can lead a pick, so you can make it suit your schedule.
