Gleaning Trips

Before signing up for a gleaning trip, please be sure that you and each person signing up has registered previously on the Volunteers page. If you have already registered as a volunteer you do not have to do so again. Sign up each person separately for gleaning trips. To sign up for a gleaning trip, click on the 'Sign up for gleaning trip' button. If the roster is full, or if you need a carpool seat but none is available, you can add your name to a waiting list.

Description: After much interest and many inquiries we've decided to host a family friendly gleaning trip! Bring your kids of any age for a fun trip tailored to families (crops will be appropriate for children to harvest, slightly shorter trip, snacks and activities included). Sign up now to reserve your spot! Parents should register themselves for the trip and they can sign a liability waiver for each child in the field. Every child must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you have trouble signing up or have questions please email Jack at outreach@bostonareagleaners.org. Trip time and location is subject to change due weather conditions and crop availability.

New feature: While you are waiting for new gleans to be posted, sign up for a new feature called My Page which will show all of your current signups, harvest details and your complete harvest history. You will also be able to get on waiting lists without waiting for an email. To use this feature, you must first give yourself a password. Go to the Volunteer Update request page to be sent a link where you can set the password and update your contact information.
