Greetings Angels! Join us for a Peach harvest tomorrow, 8 June, 8:30 am in the far Northwest in the area of Horse Dr. and Jones, near the UNCE Master Gardener Orchard. 

Harvesting is fun, easy exercise and a great way to spend the morning with friends! Volunteering feels good, and this opportunity helps feed vulnerable elders and youth, too! Carpool is available from the Henderson area, so let me know if you want or need a ride! I’ll be leaving for pickups starting at 7:30 am. We will wrap the harvest by Noon at the latest, and we will be making deliveries on the way back to Henderson.

Bring your friends! Bring your water bottle, long sleeves, pants, closed toe shoes, hat, bandanna/handercheif, and sunscreen. Bring a bag to take some of the harvest home with you~~we share with our volunteers, first!!

Please let me know to expect you, and follow this link

for full details. Thank you, in advance, for sharing this invitation with your friends and networks, and for showing up to help us harvest, if you can!

Light and Gratitude– Rhonda K.

You need to bring protection from the elements: long sleeves, gloves if you have them, long pants and closed toed shoes, a bandanna, a hat, and water. Pomegranate trees are spiky, so please don’t skip these important protection from the elements!

Children over 10 are welcome to join us. Younger children are discouraged from this event for safety reasons.

Please consider letting folks know that if they have a tree ready to harvest (right now it will be pomegranates or pistachios), Project AngelFaces can help them harvest and share their fruit. Please consider encouraging your friends or networks to volunteer with us to harvest.
