Opportunities for new volunteers

What talents will you bring to the farm?
1. Farming and gardening – volunteers join our farmers in daily farm chores. Tasks include mulching, composting, transplanting, harvesting, weeding and other plant-related tasks. No qualifications or skills required, though gardening experience is a plus.
Length of commitment: continuous (spring-fall)

2. Infrastructure and build projects – volunteers assist farm crew in building, assembling, and fixing structures such as high tunnels, sheds, farm stand, tables, benches, and other carpentry projects. Carpentry and/or construction experience is a plus.
Length of commitment: continuous (year-round opportunities)

3. Committees – Committees participate with the board of directors and farmers to plan for and coordinate the short and long term viability of the farm. We have the following committees: Finance, Marketing, Education, Master Planning, and Events. Backgrounds in finance, marketing, outdoor education, landscaping, and architecture are of value.
The time required (hours per week) 2 hours every other week or 30 minutes weekly (depending on the committee)
