Farm Volunteers Needed! Any Saturday between April-November
We love our volunteers! Beginning in April. volunteers can drop in on the farm every Saturday between10am–1pm to help us make our garden grow. Stay for as little or as long as you like and green up your thumbs. Find us at the Harvest Pavilion in the Big Garden.
From greenhouse to garden, volunteers are essential partners in our work. If you enjoy working outside, meeting new people in your community, and learning more about how to grow food, you’ll love volunteering with us. Mucking animal coops, seeding in the greenhouses, applying compost, planting and taking on larger projects are just some of the farm chores you can help with. No experience is required to volunteer; we will train you on everything you need to know. Don’t forget to dress for the weather, wear sturdy closed-toed shoes and bring a water bottle. Come on your own or register to bring a group.
If you would like to meet Common Ground students, learn about our programs, and help us on the farm all at the same time than Open Farm Day Volunteer Saturdays are a great place to start.
