Students, staff, and community members are encouraged to become involved in the Urban Farm as active participants. Volunteers are the key to sustaining a successful project.
Anyone can participate by attending Work and Learn Sessions, Lunch & Learns, and Special Events. Friends of the Farm are individuals and groups who visit the farm during scheduled sessions to participate in hands-on learning about sustainable urban agricultural practices, nutrition, or other relevant topics. No prior experience is necessary.
Additional opportunities are available for those who would like to participate on a more regular basis and will receive additional training. Farm Hands can participate
in any or all of the following activities:
Educator: would like to help run educational events
Weekender: would like to help only on weekends
Trained volunteer: trained to help on your own at the farm outside of volunteer sessions
