There are so many ways to get involved at the farm:
Join us as a Garden or Program Volunteer.
We have flexible volunteer shifts and are looking for folks who can commit to a consistent schedule (same times each week). Help out 2-10 hours a week. We also have periodic family-friendly volunteer days for folks who want to lend hand every now and then without a greater time commitment. Check our calendar for upcoming events!
Garden Volunteers: Help out in the garden by weeding, watering, harvesting, planting, or working the roadside farm stand.
Program Volunteers: Assist directly with our youth and adult programs. Help lead games, crafts, outdoor exploration, and nature lessons with kids ages 5-12.
