You can anticipate a friendly atmosphere, engaging conversations and rewarding work. Working in the fields can be physically demanding; we are often kneeling while harvesting or weeding.  Knee pads are recommended if you have sensitive knees.  Other times you'll be standing and washing vegetables or packing vegetable shares in the shade of the barn.  Both are especially fun on hot summer days!   We have volunteers that range in age from 8 to 83 years old, so come on by the farm and see what it’s all about! 

​Please wear closed toe shoes or boots and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty as well as a sun hat or sunscreen.  If it’s raining, bring rain gear, as we do work in all weather conditions.  Don’t forget to bring a water bottle.​

What to wear/bring:

We always need help harvesting for distribution.  Good days to come by for harvesting are Tuesday mornings from about 9-12 and Fridays from 9-4.  You can come anytime during those times and feel free to stay as long or as little as you like.  Every bit of help you give us allows us to work less, whether it’s at your pace or ours.  If you can’t make it on these days but can another weekday or have never volunteered before with us, please do get in touch and let us know in advance so that we can plan accordingly.
