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)
