Workshares & Volunteers

Volunteer Opportunities:

summer2008Volunteers are always welcome to come out to lend a hand. The work could not get done without many hands being involved. There is always so much to do and not enough time, so your time and efforts are always much appreciated and you will leave feeling like you got a lot accomplished. We’re always sure to send you away with vegetables to bring home. Be sure to set up a time beforehand so we can be in the right field to meet you when you come out.  Get directions here.

Work Shares (4+ positions available)

Hours: 7am to 2pm Monday, Wednesday, OR Friday, time off on request

Pay: Any size Summer Share Basket per week, plus any add-ons, lunch included on days worked

Requirements: Able to lift 50#, can work physical labor on your feet for 5 hours, able to follow directions and work as part of a team, reasonable attention to detail

We’re looking for people with an interest in working with the farm crew on harvest days to come in at 7am when we start and then use our on-site kitchen to cook lunch and eat with the crew from Noon till 2pm. We will provide any size share basket and add-ons for you on the day you work, as well as giving you access to the swap table and any extra veggies you want to take home that we can spare! Workshares are an integral part of the farm community and often are an opportunity to transition to paid employment later on as well as to participate in farm life and learn about how to grow and use vegetables in your daily life.

We will accommodate your needs, we recognize that most people have vacations in the summer and emergencies happen, as long as you notify us we are happy to accommodate your schedule. Teens and seniors are welcome!

If you want to work with us, first come first serve, call us and we’ll work out the details.
