About

Join Concrete Jungle Athens every Tuesday evening to discover the fruity bounty of our city and help feed our neighbors by lending a hand with harvesting a fruit tree in our city! What we're harvesting (we harvest everything from mulberries and serviceberries to pears, pomegranates, and pineapple guava) and where changes weekly--you'll get an email 1-2 days before the pick with all details you need to know, including the address, your pick lead / point of contact, and any other relevant details (parking, etc.). Please note that these events are heavily weather dependent; please keep an eye on your email the day of the pick for up-to-date information about any location changes or cancellations. 

For these harvests, please always bring the following with you:
- sturdy, close-toed shoes
- comfortable clothes you don't mind getting dirty and can move around in!
- A mask! This is optional. However, we strongly encourage the use of masks when it may be difficult to socially distance from other volunteers during a pick or harvest event.
- Water, and plenty of it!

If something comes up and you can't make it to a pick you're registered for, no worries! We rely heavily on volunteers to harvest the fruit we donate, so please be sure to cancel your registration on GivePulse at least 24 hours in advance so someone else can take your spot and we can make sure we have enough helping hands to pick! 

FOOD SAFETY INFORMATION:
To ensure we're following food safety protocols and protecting the communities we're serving, please:
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before arriving to a Concrete Jungle pick
- Do not attend a pick/handle food if you're sick

COVID INFORMATION:
In accordance with public health guidelines:
- Masks are optional at ourdoor events. However, we strongly encourage the use of masks when it may be difficult to socially distance from other volunteers during a pick.
- Individuals who are older than 65 or have a chronic health condition should not volunteer until fully vaccinated.
- Individuals who are sick or live with someone who is should not volunteer.

Note: All staff that oversee our programs are fully vaccinated. We ask volunteers who have traveled or may have been exposed to Covid-19 to not volunteer until they receive a negative test result.
