Fruit and Vegetable Picking
Concrete Jungle coordinates approximately 70 volunteer events per year, engaging more than 960 volunteers from the Atlanta metropolitan community. Through this work, Concrete Jungle educates participants on Atlanta and Georgia’s horticultural diversity and the hunger and health issues of our homeless and food insecure population. Volunteer events encourage participants to explore their surroundings and engage with the natural environment around them. These events include fruit picks in and around the metro Atlanta area (and Athens) and adventure picks to reclaim and donate unwanted or excess produce from farms and orchards around Georgia.
