In light of COVID-19, we cannot provide any volunteer opportunities on the farm due to social distancing declarations. For now, please consider supporting our farm through donations, CSA purchases and signing up for camp! We will refund camp in full, should we be unable to complete our season.

Volunteers support our small staff on a big mission: to make the community a more healthy and empowered place through sustainable farming and education. There are volunteer opportunities for individuals, corporate groups, and youth groups.
