Through the harvesting program, refugees and other volunteers learn how to identify, access, harvest, use and store locally grown produce, mostly from edible trees.

In addition, refugees gain valuable experience navigating the city, meeting Tucsonans, building a US work history, practicing English, and gaining job readiness training geared towards maintenance and landscaping. Harvesting activities include weighing, recording, culling, composting, packaging, and redistributing the harvest.
