Harvesting Event @ Swan's Farm & Flower

Join the High Desert Food & Farm Alliance for a harvesting event at Swan's Farm and Flower! We will be harvesting around 400 heads of lettuce. All produce harvested will be part of HDFFA's Grow & Give program and be distributed through NeighborImpact, our local food bank network. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to take a bag of greens home as a thank you for all your hard work! Please email [email protected] if you have any questions. 

The Details:

1. Date/Time: Wednesday June 2nd @ 9am 

2. Location: Swan's Farm & Flower- 17578 Paladin Drive – Bend OR

Directions from Bend: 

  • HWY 20 west towards Sisters
  • Left on Plainview
  • Right on Paladin  ( follow the loop around )
  • Driveway is on the right . 
  • There will be a HDFFA green Grow & Give sign also marking the location.

2. We will be harvesting 400 heads of lettuce. Produce harvested will be distributed through NeighborImpact, the regional foodbank network. 
3. Weather: The lettuce harvested will be from a greenhouse. The weather is looking very warm for Wednesday, even by 9am. If you are feeling overheated please remember to take breaks and drink lots of water. With enough volunteers I do not anticipate this taking more than 1 hour. 

4. Recommendations for harvesting events:

  • Clothing: clothing that is okay to get dirty, appropriate for the task at hand- farmwork, and keeps you cool or sun protected (hats, sunglasses encouraged)
  • Footwear: closetoed is best but sturdy sandals are okay. Shoes may get dirty and wet.
  • Gardening gloves: HDFFA has some available to borrow but you are also welcome to bring your own if you like to wear them in the field
  • Tools: We will have some harvesting knives available but if you may also bring your own! 
  • Water: bring lots of water and take breaks to drink often. We will have water available to refill water bottles but will not have bottles themselves available.
