We will have several volunteer days throughout the 2017 season. Check back here to find a listing of this year's volunteer days. If you're interested in a regular commitment, check out our City Farmers program.
Farm work varies almost as much as the weather and as a volunteer, you may be asked to do anything from planting seeds and weeding to painting or building. Our staff is always available to offer guidance and answer questions along the way.
We host a limited number of volunteer groups on the farm during the growing season. Due to the high demand for our limited spots, we typically focus on working with groups representing community-based organizations and businesses that are interesting in forming a partnership with Common Good City Farm.
Participants engage in farm tasks (planting, harvesting, weeding, composting etc.) and learn about sustainable agriculture and our food system through discussions. This is a great team-building and bonding experience for groups and a meaningful way to contribute towards urban agriculture and healthy food access in our neighborhood.
We host groups of up to 15 people and ask for a donation of $10 per personto help sustain our programs. Please contact us if you cannot afford to make a donation. We ask larger companies to make a tax-deductible contribution of $500 or more to help support our work and community.
Throughout the growing season (April - October), we typically host volunteer groups for 2-3 hour sessions. If you are interested in scheduling a group please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
