One of the goals of the community farm stand is to set up a program to harvest our local neighborhood yard’s tree and produce and put the items out at the farm stand to share with the community.
I have recently volunteered with the Village Harvest Organization in the San Jose, California Area that is setup to use volunteers to harvest mostly residential yard harvests and passes it along to local food agencies.
With our community farm stand, I was thinking we could harvest locally in our neighborhoods when homeowners either couldn’t harvest it themselves from time or abilities or extra surplus and the farm stand could be use to share that bounty directly back to the community.
To help promote that program, I have created a word document that is designed to be edit and configured for your own neighborhood and community.
