We post gleans for everyone to see, but we may tag you if you live in that glean's particular area.
I'm not on Facebook and therefore do not care.
I'm on Facebook, I don't understand "tagging." Please help?
I'm on Facebook and I understand. Tagging is fine. I promise not to have a fit of rage and hysterics over being tagged.
Phone (Cell Preferred- please specify):
If you sign up for a glean and don't show, or if you are leading a glean or have other info and need people to call you. Optional.
Would you like to opt-in for text messages?
What is your preferred method of contact?

Did you read the Gleaner rules (aka Member Handbook)?
I understand that all items are for my immediate household use only, and I am not permitted to share gleaned items with friends or family, and I absolutely may not barter or sell said items at any time.
Eugene Area Gleaners is a Gleaning Group
We are active and go out and glean in farms and yards. Members are expected to go on gleans or help the group in some other way. Please expect to glean or do one thing for the group per month. You can sign up for something in-depth and use it on your resume, and ask for a written recommendation, or you can do something "light." All jobs are important and desperately need done!
You understand that you need to do something to help the group once per month? It doesn't have to be gleaning or anything physical but if you are going to participate in the drop-sites or benefit from the group in any way, you should expect to contribute somehow.
Eugene Area Gleaners is a completely grassroots, volunteer-based, member-run organization. Each and every member of this group is expected to volunteer and contribute to the group at least once per month, including gleaning when we can. How else are you able to contribute to the group?
Everyone has something they can do!
I would like to be a drop-site host for my area.
I can help call farms/send letters or emails.
I can volunteer at a booth.
Writing blog posts about farming, gleaning, or cooking gleaned produce.
Sharing recipes to be posted on our blog.
Photography during gleans, pictures to be shared on blog, Facebook.
Babysitting/dogsitting in exchange for a glean share.
Helping organize/host events: canning bees, potluck meetings, meal trains.
I can be a resource for teaching people how to can.
I can be a resource to owners on how to prune or tend trees.
I can help clean up at a drop-site once a week.
I understand that this is a non-profit. Everyone running the group and in the group is an unpaid volunteer. I understand that I am expected to go on gleans as I am able, and to contribute somehow to the group as above.
Most gleans through this group are in private owners' yards. We are usually called 'last minute' and gleans are scheduled at the donors' and glean leaders' schedules. You sign up for the ones you are able to make. You don't have to respond unless you can come. You should try to attend 1 glean per month.
There is usually a set number of people that a glean can support. Each glean will specify whether or not children (defined as anyone 18 or under) are permitted. Anyone 18 and above needs to fill out their own form. You can sign up for them, please sign up with their names so that the Glean Leader knows how many are coming. If you are bringing children, you should be prepared to keep them on task or at least at your side at all times. If the person you sign up for flakes (no-call, no-show), they may be kicked out of the group and banned from coming to gleans.
Got it- no one under 18 if a glean says "No kids" are allowed!
Got it- Each person 18 and above in my household needs to fill out the membership form and understand the rules.
Got it- I can sign up my kids and spouse to come with me on a glean if there are enough spots available, but if anyone of them 'flakes' they may be removed from the group.
Got it- I should definitely bring anyone and everyone I can get to come with me to each and every glean.
I need help with this.
Each glean will state what is needed on a glean, and what the Glean Leader has. It will also state what each person needs to bring on the glean. Who is responsible for bringing equipment to a glean?
Gleaners should bring their own equipment as specified in the glean post.
Glean leaders will take care of all of that for us.
I do not understand or need help with this.
When you sign up for a glean, you are committing to showing up on that date and time. Gleaners, even seasoned Glean Leaders, are not permitted to go to a glean alone. What happens if you sign up for a glean and don't show up or call (flake) ?
Added to the restricted list and gleans I am invited to or able to attend are limited, may be kicked from the group if it becomes repeat behavior.
Kicked out of the group with no warning.
I don't understand or need help with this.
