PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE DISCLOSURE/EVENT DESCRIPTION BEFORE ATTENDING. BEFORE YOU HEAD THIS WAY: Heart 2 Heart Farms (In Sherwood Oregon), GENEROUSLY donates their time, their equipment, and their space to help us get food to those in need. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL of their space! First, this farm is on a HILL, and there is ONLY street-side parking. If you cannot walk up a hill, you will need to bring someone who can come glean for you. Second, the GOOD FOOD GOES FAST, and volunteers get first pick! If you are really in need and/or want to make sure you get the most of the gleaning event, show up early, volunteer an hour or two, and get first pick of what comes off the truck :) Next, this is an outdoor event, and the farm is not equipped with a covered area, so please wear/bring weatherproof/appropriate clothing/accessories. Also, we generally don't have enough bags, boxes, and carrying containers for everyone, so we advise EVERYONE to bring their own. Finally, if dirt, animal poop, stink, and flies bother you, please save yourself the headache and do not attend this event-it is held at A FARM." Children are welcome, but the "child-oriented activities" are few (again, we are a functional farm), so if you bring children, please don't get your feelings hurt if we don't have baby tools with appropriate toddler-tasks laid out for your 2, 4, and 6-year olds when you arrive. WHAT THIS EVENT IS: EVERY Saturday, we pick up all the un-saleable vegetables from a few local distributors (along with spent grains, some fruit, and waste vegetable oil), and allow anyone in need glean as much fruit, vegetables, and local grains as desired for their family (and friends) to use. We know MANY families are struggling to put food on the table, and this is one way we can help! IMPORTANT: These are NOT "store-quality" vegetables. Everything we pick up is damaged or unfit for resale in some way, whether it's expired, bruised, wilted, moldy or imperfect in some other manner. This is a SALVAGE event, so our quantity (and quality) is different every week. Please be aware we can only pick up what is available. Some weeks we have lots of great veggies in almost perfect condition, some weeks the quality is much lower. We TRY to post what the haul looks like, but we don't always have an opportunity. We've found what we do makes an INCREDIBLE difference to MANY families who would otherwise be eating only processed food, but if any of the above things bother you, you may want to pick a different event :) WE NEED HELP: We We ask/encourage EVERYONE to show up NOT just to take vegetables, but help us continue to provide this service. We are NOT a big organization, just ONE FAMILY trying to help their community...we don't have a staff (at all), and our resources are limited. If you believe in what we're doing, and want/need it to continue, please come pitch in and help us in our cause :) ITINERARY: We empty all the vegetable bins and load the truck and trailer with empties between 5am and 7am every day. Once the truck is loaded, the farmers LOVE help making bottles for, feeding, and watering the baby calves, then goats need to be milked, and all the other animals need to be fed/tended to. The area also needs to be cleaned/picked up in preparation for the returning vegetable load. Generally the last pickup is about 10:00am, and we return to the farm around 11:00 with a VERY full truck. When the truck returns, we unload the barrels, sort the bounty, stage the spoiled veggies to be used as the week's feed for the livestock, and clean the area. PLEASE NOTE: The farmers at Heart 2 Heart Farms need help around the farm ALL DAY, and all ages/skill levels of volunteers are welcome (provided they have filled out and turned in required volunteer/gleaning liability waivers [available on-site]). Heart 2 Heart Farms, LLC wants us to give the following warning: Notice: This property is zoned EFU (Exclusive Farm Use) It is an ACTIVE, farm Farms Have animals Animals are eventually harvested for food (we harvest them HERE-on site) Animals Poop; Poop Stinks (even yours) Animal Stink Attracts Flies Animals Have Sex Outdoors Unless you can tolerate: Noise, strong odor, the inherent risks associated with animals and farming (including electric fences), the process of turning animals into food, and outdoor sex, BEWARE, (all those things happen here…some of them regularly) Further Warning: Under Oregon Law, there is no liability for injury to, or death of a participant in an equine or agritourism activity conducted at this agritourism location if such injury or death result from the inherent risks to equine or agritourism activities including, among others, risk of injury or death inherent to land, animals, equipment, chemicals, or livestock.

We are NOT a big organization, just ONE FAMILY trying to help their community...we don't have a staff (at all), and our resources are limited. If you believe in what we're doing, and want/need it to continue, please come pitch in and help us in our cause :) ITINERARY: We empty all the vegetable bins and load the truck and trailer with empties between 5am and 7am every day. Once the truck is loaded, the farmers LOVE help making bottles for, feeding, and watering the baby calves, then goats need to be milked, and all the other animals need to be fed/tended to. The area also needs to be cleaned/picked up in preparation for the returning vegetable load. Generally the last pickup is about 10:00am, and we return to the farm around 11:00 with a VERY full truck. When the truck returns, we unload the barrels, sort the bounty, stage the spoiled veggies to be used as the week's feed for the livestock, and clean the area. PLEASE NOTE: The farmers at Heart 2 Heart Farms need help around the farm ALL DAY, and all ages/skill levels of volunteers are welcome (provided they have filled out and turned in required volunteer/gleaning liability waivers [available on-site]).
