Farmer volunteers and groups can also join us for special building, farm or trail maintenance projects, or help with events and in the office!

What our volunteers are saying:

“It might be a little cliche, but for the first time I actualized the idea of farm to table in the context of my life. My most enjoyable days at the farm were the Thursdays that I began by harvesting vegetables from the ground and ended by handing off those vegetables to families who were going to take them home for dinner. Having the opportunity to be a part of the full process was really meaningful to me and proved to me through experience why what I want to do is so important.” – Dana Robinson, summer 2012
