On Saturday, March 26th, Sacramento Charter High-School in alliance with Soil Born Farms hosted a event called Harvest Sacramento where organizations, local people and youth of all ages were encouraged to come and pair up into teams and head into the neighborhoods. The featuring neighborhoods were North Oak Park, Midtown, East Sacramento, and many more from all over Sacramento County.
Each group had a specific neighborhood to harvest from and carpooled to the many registered local homes. Then the owner of the property which the tree was on was able to decide whether they wanted to keep or donate all of their fruit from their overbearing trees to the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services for those in need of fresh fruit.
Harvest Sacramento also gives anyone who participates take home boxes of different type of citrus like grapefruit, oranges, lemons and tangerines for their own selves, families, friends and or community centers. With the efforts of everyone who collaborated on this day during this recent event, they had reached the amount of a little more than 4,000 lbs of fruit.
“I’ve lead individual harvest groups and have participated in the picking its exciting,” said Melanie Weir, program participant. “Whenever I come out I always meet interesting and awesome people that are inspirational.”
In this video, I got an interview with Dominic Allamano at a one of his community volunteer events for the program Harvest Sacramento along with footage of volunteers who attended the event.
