Volunteer Info Session

A volunteer leads a guided tour.

On Friday, February 24 at 10 AM, anyone interested in learning more about volunteering at the farm is welcome to attend an information session to learn about various volunteer duties as well as a brief history of the farm.

There is no weekly or even monthly commitment to volunteer. Some come regularly on the same day each week; others come when they are able. Some of the volunteer opportunities are working on the grounds crew or as a gardener, serving as a tour guide, assisting with school field trips, helping with special events, cleaning the historic farmhouse and more.
