Information on Picking


Volunteers receive instruction on what and how to pick. Sessions generally last 3 hours, but you are welcome to leave at any time.  Please arrive on time so you will not need to search for us in the field.
 
Dates & locations will change with the weather. If you join our picking email list you will be kept informed all season long. To be included contact Laura via the ‘contact nipe’ link at the top of this page.

Attire: Sturdy shoes, long sleeves, long pants, a wide-brimmed hat and gardening gloves.
Bring: Sun screen, bug spray, bottle of water, clippers, and picking apron if you have one.
