Come join the Backyard Bounty team to glean fresh, ready-to-pick fruit at La Casa de Maria! We’ll be gleaning from a variety of fruit trees, including oranges, mandarins, lemons, and limes. Come help us save La Casa’s fruit and make a donation to the Santa Barbara Food Bank.
We will provide a short tour of La Casa starting right at 9:00a., please be on time. Gleaning will begin at 9:30a. You will NOT have an opportunity to walk the grounds on your own or to be apart from the group as a whole, and you will need to leave the property at the end of the glean. Please only come if you are ready and willing to work. There will be other opportunities in the future for other types of volunteering, but right now, this is the support we need!
*This is NOT a kid friendly event; no one under 18 is allowed on site!
Location: Enter La Casa de Maria from the rear exit (888 San Ysidro Lane). You will need to sign in at the security gate and your name must be on the pre-registration list to enter. You will park in the basketball court/parking area across from the San Ysidro Dorm. Please do not drive to any other location on the La Casa property.
