About the Event

Veggie Volunteers is a regional gleaning program for kids, teens, and adults. All are welcome to volunteer, no experience necessary. We head out to the farm fields and pick excess or second-quality vegetables for local food banks. Picking is rain or shine.

We pick at Spider Web Garden in Tuftonboro Mondays until mid-September. We pick into banana boxes. We much appreciate anyone who can bring these boxes to the picking.

What to bring

Bring water, sun hat and sturdy footwear.

Youth Instructions

Teens are welcome to attend, note that picking time varies. Sometimes it's only an hour, other times three hours. Children must be accompanied by an adult. We use knives or scissors to harvest the vegetables, so volunteers must be comfortable and safe while out picking.
