City Fruit Ambassador

What is a City Fruit Ambassador?

City Fruit Ambassadors are neighborhood-focused volunteers, dedicated to the urban fruit tree canopy and expanding its impact. Ambassadors raise awareness about urban fruit trees, help to promote the annual harvest, and support orchard and community events.
Ambassadors use their skills and neighborhood networks to cultivate community support for urban food systems and food security. Participants have the opportunity to define their role based on areas of interest such as communications, outreach, and leadership!

  • Outreach events

Ambassador Term & Time Commitment

Ambassadors volunteer with City Fruit for 6 months. Depending on interests and availability, Ambassadors may stay with City Fruit for as long as they continue to thrive and enjoy connecting with local neighborhoods and communities!
