VOLUNTEER IN OUR GROWING FIELDS

April 22November 6, 2018
Tue
& Sun, 10 am4 pm

 

From spring through fall, individuals (ages 18 & older) are invited to work alongside our farmers in the growing fields every Tuesday and Sunday between 10 am and 4 pm.

 

There is no need to sign-up or apply; you may drop in for an hour or stay for the whole day, whatever works for you! Just stop by our Welcome Center on your first day, and a staff member will point you in the right direction.

 

Prepare to get dirty! Tasks are often physically strenuous, so wear proper outdoor work attire (hat, sunglasses, layers, rain gear, gloves, closed-toed shoes, etc.) and pack a water bottle. We invite all volunteers to join us for lunch (we provide a side farm salad whenever possible!).

 

Please note:

  • Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
  • We cannot accommodate groups on Volunteer Days at this time.
  • Activities do not include hands-on work with our livestock.
