Event description
Roughly 1 in 4 households across Albany is experiencing food insecurity, and together we can plant the seeds for nourishment.

About this Event

NOTE: EACH VOLUNTEER MUST BE REGISTERED BEFORE ARRIVING TO THE FARM. -- Minors must be registered by a parent or legal guardian.

Volunteering with Flint River Fresh is a unique experience. We offer you the opportunity to make a difference in your community, empower young leaders, and learn about our sustainable local urban farm. Our goal is to offer everyone that steps on to our farm with an opportunity to grow!

No experience required. We are prepared to teach you what we know. Our farm needs volunteers to plant, cultivate, and harvest fruits and vegetables. We do require that you have an open-mind and are ready to receive instructions.

We invite you to step away from your daily life and visit our urban farm, located in Downtown Albany. You will soak up the sun, get a little muddy, and help support our cause. To support our mission, 60% of the produce is sold at farmer’s markets and the wholesale market. The other 40% is donated to local hunger relief organizations to get fresh food into the hands of those in need.

You may contact us at info@flintriverfresh.org with any questions or concerns.
