Join our team on the farm! Learn about urban farming while being part of a team striving to do good for our community and mother earth.
Volunteer Saturdays from 10am to 6pm Get fresh produce! 1 day a week for 4 to 6 hours
The perks are many! Learn, get dirty, fresh produce, and LOVING what we do and bring to the community! There is so much to learn about our urban farm! Microgreens, aquaponics, vermiculture, chickens, permaculture, organic growing, tomatoes, root crops, salad mixes, herbs, and more. Fresh air, getting dirty all while getting the blood pumping will have you going home feeling good about your day. Not to mention the fresh produce you get to take home with you. I strive to create a workplace you feel proud to be at.
Tasks vary but can include: - seeding transplants - transplanting - hand transplanting to field - field harvesting (by hand and small harvester) - processing produce (washing, drying & packing) - pruning and upkeep of crops - general clean up and farm chores
Skills needed: - able to stay on task and work efficiently with others and on your own - lift up to 60 lbs but there is plenty to do without needing to do any heavy lifting for volunteers - self motivated - able to work on their feet - work bending over for weeding, harvesting and transplanting - positive attitude! Let's love what we do! :D - reliable
We want this to be an environment for volunteers to get dirty and learn about everything we do here. It is very taxing to teach people new tasks, so the longer and more consistent you are - the more we can teach you! We WANT to spread the knowledge and power of growing your own safe and nutrient dense foods! :) Simple tasks will be given in the beginning and will evolve to more knowledge based tasks.
