Orange Picking

TC’s orange picking event is one not to be missed. Once a year, we leave our UCSD campus bubble to visit privately owned orange groves located in Escondido. These orange trees grow so many oranges that it’s impossible for one person to pick them all. As a result, most are usually left to rot. But fear not – with the help of our TC volunteers and the Giving Groves Program, we can save these yummy fruits by picking them, then donating them to the San Diego Food Bank to feed the needy.
