Harvest Leader Manual

  Scouting: paperwork


Send or deliver the Entry Authorization Form to the Database Manager. A customized version of this form can be printed from a link on the Crop Details page for that crop.

The Entry Authorization Form is our only evidence that we have permission to be on the property and to take the produce. It is stored for future reference and does not have an expiration date on it. However, always get a new form signed each year. This further protects Merced County Gleaning as a backup and is a reminder for the owner about the importance that we put on permission.

The harvest planning form is the worksheet for determining how many pickers to set the roster for as well as all the other details of planning the harvest. It does not need to be saved past the harvest. The important information on it that may be of use to future harvest leaders of that crop should be entered into the Crop Details. All 'Ripe' (certified) harvest leaders have access to the database page, Crop Update, where this is done.
