Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are a crucial part of our work growing nourishing food for our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. In 2021, volunteers provided over 2,700 hours of time, planting, weeding, and caring for the land. We are incredibly grateful for our volunteers and would love for you to join the team!

Our Second Saturday Workdays are the best way for new volunteers to learn more about our work and see if volunteering with us is the right fit for you! These workdays are open to everyone and are a fantastic opportunity to work alongside others in our community.   

 

Second Saturday Workdays take place from February through November on the second Saturday of each month from 8:30-11:00AM.
