About this event

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at What Cheer Flower Farm!

Register here for our weekly open volunteer day every:

  1. Wednesday, 9am-12pm OR
  2. Saturday, 9am-12pm

Open volunteer days are great for people interested in helping out with our everyday farming and floristry tasks on the farm. This may include: weeding, planting, digging, watering, harvesting and trimming flowers, arranging bouquets, and helping us clean up the property.

Farm Conditions/Accessibility:

  • It can be more than 10 degrees hotter here than the rest of the state. Make sure you're prepared for the day's weather and please wear comfortable, close-toed shoes. Sandals, crocs, loose clogs, etc. not being appropriate for the mixed terrain. Wear something sturdy!
  • We provide bug spray, sunscreen, and gloves, though you may bring your own, if you prefer them. Tools are provided as well.
  • Volunteers on these days should be able to stand the entire time, walk on moderate mixed terrain, and be able to lift at least 25 pounds.
  • Instruction will be provided for all tasks, all comfort levels are welcome. (Instruction is only in English at this time).

Parking: While we do have enough parking for each day's worth of volunteer's cars (~6), we strongly encourage carpooling, walking, using RIPTA (we're two blocks away from four bus routes) and biking!

Registration: All volunteers must register for each "shift". Meaning if you want to bring a friend, family member or colleague to volunteer with you (please do! :) they need to sign up with this link, too. A release form will be required to be signed by each volunteer on the day of their visit.

Ages :14 yr and up only. Youth must receive permission from a parent or guardian prior to visit. A release form will be emailed out in advance.

Can't make it on Wednesday or Saturday mornings? Looking for administrative or sitting tasks? Or perhaps you have a larger group (more than 6 people, the limit for each day's "shift")? Please fill out this form if you haven't already.
