The Natick Community Organic Farm welcomes a wide range of groups. To guarantee an excellent experience for all Corporate Volunteers, we require a fee to offset the cost of staff planning, preparation and coordination time, tools and materials, and maintenance and support of the project. We ask for a commitment of $500 from each group, this can be something the team raises through fundraising or it can be a contribution from the company.
Volunteers should be able to bend, lift, carry heavy-ish items, handle small hand tools, follow multi-step directions, possess a can-do spirit, and maintain a cheerful and positive demeanor on our visitor-friendly, community farm.
Group size is limited to 15 people at this time. You can contact us for more information if you have a larger group.
We offer other types of volunteering for Corporate groups including skills based opportunities and tailored days to suit your group, as well as offering a ‘field day’ visit for those just wanting to learn more about our work. Please speak to Nicky Wilson about these opportunities.
We would be delighted to host you and your colleagues at the Natick Community Organic Farm, it is a great opportunity to work as a team in a different environment as part of your Corporate Social Responsibility and Employee Engagement programs.
