Join us for our Grown@Pope Harvesting Events! Volunteers will harvest with the hosts; Food Production and Donation Coordinator, Crop Production Assistants to harvest, collect, and weigh produce to be donated to food assistance providers across Montgomery County.

This project strengthens food security in the county and provides families with fresh produce grown on parkland. When you harvest with us, you'll have a good time and celebrate a good cause.

Instruction and tools will be provided. Most workdays will be scheduled in the mornings at Pope Farm Nursery, Monday through Friday for 2- or 4-hour shifts.

On days when there is minimal harvesting, volunteers will work on weeding or planting new food crops.
