Volunteers power the farm! From single days of service to hundreds of hours over the course of an internship, we believe that everyone can be a productive contributor to the farm. Volunteer work is primarily farm chore-based and outdoors. So whether you’re looking to be in a beautiful setting, or enjoy meeting new people, or want to learn the principles behind organic farming, we have a robust and educational experience for you.
