Volunteer

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.

Days: Select Tuesday and/or Wednesday and/or Thursday

Times: Select 9:00-12:00 and/or 1:30-4:30

Who: Individual high school and college students (age 18+), adults, business, religious, and community groups

Who Else? Middle and high school groups under age 18+ may be hosted as a School Programs Volunteer Group. For info, click here.

When: Year round / Larger groups are welcome only in spring, summer, and fall

What: Outdoor farm chores! Farm chores change with the seasons and the day, so volunteers must have a flexible spirit and embrace new challenges. Some examples of seasonal work include:

  • Seeding
  • Transplanting
  • Sap collection + boiling
  • Light carpentry work
  • Mucking animal stalls
  • Harvesting
  • Animal Care
  • Weeding and cultivating
  • Mulching and winterizing garden beds

Requirements: 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.
