About this event

We are excited to welcome volunteers to the farm. Everyone, young or old, experienced or still learning, is welcome to join our community workdays held currently on select Saturday afternoons from 1 - 4:30 PM. We are welcoming up to 20 volunteers per day and registration is required in advance.

Please only sign up for what you can 100% commit to and let us know ASAP if you do not plan to attend so we can open your space to someone on the wait list.

Please plan to arrive on time! We encourage volunteers to stay for the whole day (1:00-4:30 pm), however we understand that some may need to leave early. Please let us know when you arrive.

Volunteers will be required to sign a waiver upon arrival.

Each person in your party (including children) must be signed up

Bring a mask: Masks are recommended when working in close proximity to others.

New volunteers are encouraged to take an orientation tour of the farm at the beginning of the workday. After an orientation, we will work on various projects and will end the day with a vegetable harvest for volunteers to take home. Farm projects may include weeding, planting, bed preparation, fruit tree work, compost making, mulching, pathway maintenance, greenhouse work, and more.

What to bring -- we will provide all of the tools you need. If you prefer to bring your own gloves, hori hori or clippers, please do so.

  • Water Bottle
  • Hat
  • Sturdy Shoes
  • Jacket with layered clothing underneath
