Group Volunteering 

As stewards of this legendary landscape, we are honored to partner with neighbors and stakeholders who offer their time and talents in support of our mission. We welcome inquiries from volunteer groups. 

Our primary opportunity for group volunteers are our monthly Community Farm Days. Work side by side with our Farm Team as you experience a day on the Farm. Please see our events calendar to register for the next available opportunity.

Additional outdoor volunteer opportunities are available between April and October. Possible activities include planting, weeding, harvesting, painting, and cleaning. Volunteers work closely with our staff, and all necessary equipment and instruction is provided. Activities can be tailored to accommodate the size of your group and participants’ particular skills or fitness levels.

All volunteer groups must be scheduled in advance. Date and project availability varies throughout the year. All volunteers must sign a waiver before participating. Please reach out to to discuss your corporate volunteer opportunity.

Professional, Business, and Community Service Opportunities

Occasionally, we seek the assistance of local builders, contractors, architects, engineers and others for infrastructure projects. We're also happy to collaborate with businesses and corporations on single projects or group efforts.

We also welcome students who are seeking to fulfill community service opportunities. Please reach out to us at to discuss in more detail.
