Harvest Share


CVHS - Clear Logo


Harvest Share gleans unwanted fruit to help reduce conflict with bears and other wildlife; and shares this produce with the community.

Harvest Share is a non-profit program implemented by the Creston Valley Food Action Coalition in 2008. Our focus is to reduce the amount of fresh produce that goes to waste here in our valley, and make this produce available to picking volunteers and local service agencies who assist individuals and families in need. We operate through the generosity of local Creston residents. People with fruit/nut trees, gardens and berry bushes invite us to their home to harvest the abundance of produce. The harvest is then split three ways: between the owner of the property, the picking volunteers and local service agencies. The harvest season started June 29th, 2015 this past season. Contact us if you’d like to get involved!

Our Harvest Share season 2020 has begun!  We are out in the valley harvesting and sharing food!
