Hi there and thanks for visiting our site! Flower City Pickers has been around for over two and a half years operating out of Rochester's Public Market. This year we've started to collect food on Tuesdays and Thursdays in addition to our regular Saturdays. Because of this, we are in need of a few core volunteers, as well as, those interested in joining our board of trustees!
What is a core volunteer? Someone who we can rely on a weekly basis. Someone who we can train to help coordinate other volunteers and properly store equipment. This person(s) will come early and stay late to help ensure that all produce is correctly distributed to strive towards our zero waste goal.
FCP has a board of directors and a board of trustees. These folks aren't necessarily at the market getting their hands dirty, but are involved in the behind the scenes involvement needed to keep FCP moving strong. There are positions available in many areas. If you have many skills in an area and think you'd be a good fit, we can even make room for you! Please contact Khoury (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
FCP has monthly meetings open to all to share ideas and concerns. Check out our calendar page for more information.
