You can get involved with our vibrant Farm community by becoming a volunteer. Farming, nursery, construction and kitchen volunteers are welcome. We also occasionally need people with professional or trade skills (even off-site help, if you can’t get to the farm): building, electrical, plumbing, welding, accounting, legal, to name a few.
There are lots of meaningful ways to be a part of the Farm community. Volunteers work in teams to assist in:
- Maintaining gardens
- Nursery production
- Market gardens production
- Cooking and food processing
- Green waste recycling
- Animal care
- Construction and tool maintenance
- Assisting with events
- Administration, promotions, & IT support
