Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are a crucial part of our work growing nourishing food for our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. In 2022, volunteers provided over 3,500 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!

Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in volunteering with us? Check out the opportunities below!     


This summer, starting June 17th, we will offer drop by hours on Saturday mornings for anyone who would like to come work on simple projects! If you would like to learn a bit about the work we do as an organization, please arrive at 8:30am when one of our leaders will give a vision talk and offer a farm tour. Otherwise you are welcome to drop by anytime 8:30-11am to work!

PLEASE NOTE: We will not have drop by volunteer hours on Saturday, September 2nd, 2023 as we will be closed for Labor Day Weekend.  Drop by volunteer hours will resume the following Saturday.

Second Saturdays

Our Second Saturday Workdays are a fun opportunity to knock out some big projects on the farm! Second Saturday Workdays take place on the second Saturday of each month from February to November. We offer a farm tour at 8:30 and work from 9-11:00am.  We welcome individuals and small groups of up to 7 people. 

Because we do more structured projects on Second Saturdays, we ask that you sign up so we can plan accordingly. You can find more information and sign up at riseup.link/secondsaturday 


Rise Up is powered by a crew of amazing & dedicated volunteers who help us with day to day planting, weeding and harvesting. If you are excited at the thought of building community while learning farming skills and have consistent morning availability on Wednesdays or Thursdays (whether it’s an hour here or there, or a couple days a week!), please email volunteers@riseupcommunityfarm.org to schedule a time to volunteer!

GROUP Volunteer Opportunities  

We are so thankful for volunteer groups and the work and time they invest! We schedule volunteer groups based on the seasonal needs of the farm and would love for you to reach out if you’re interested in bringing a group out to volunteer with us. Please reach out to volunteers@riseupcommunityfarm.org and we will see if there is a date and project that works well for us both!

Want to stay in the loop?
