For Individuals & Families

Volunteer at the Farm

Throughout the growing season, people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome as fieldwork volunteers. No previous experience or knowledge is expected! This is a great, hands-on way to learn about agriculture and help create a more resilient and equitable food system.  

Fieldwork may include preparing garden beds, weeding, hoeing, moving compost, irrigating, trellising tomatoes, seeding, transplanting, and more. Supervised children are welcome. No dogs, please (working dogs accepted).  

We will be hosting groups and individuals monthly on Saturdays from.9:30-11:30 a.m. Each month we'll tackle  a different project and an optional farm tour will begin at 11:30 a.m. The Saturdays for this  season are: June 25th, July 23rd, August 27th, and September 24th. Mark your calendars and check back for sign-ups as each date approaches.

Sign up here for June's workday on the 25th.

Sabbath at the Farm

Think you might be nurtured by simple, family friendly worship with a backdrop of bird songs and ripening vegetables? This seasonal Sunday evening gathering includes all ages and denominations. We begin with a short worship service that includes Scripture, live music and a multi-generational shared reflection and conclude with a potluck.

In 2022 we'll be hosting SATF every Sunday at 4:30 p.m. Bring a dish to share and a blanket, chair or whatever you like to sit on. Come bless and be blessed by the land. If we need to cancel due to weather, we will update our Facebook page by noon on Sunday.
