Volunteer

Volunteers play a critical role in fulfilling the Food Literacy Project’s mission. Volunteering  is a fun and rewarding experience, and a wide range of volunteer opportunities are available.

Farm-based Education Volunteer: We need volunteers to support and help lead educational activities with students on the farm. Activities include planting seeds, exploring worm compost, preparing freshly harvested food, playing educational games, and leading tasting tours of the farm. Volunteers are needed Tuesdays-Thursdays, March through November.

Garden VolunteerAlthough our program site is located among vegetable fields, we maintain a garden to expose participants to a wide variety of vegetables in a small area. Volunteers will help prepare beds, plant, mulch, weed, and water. Occasionally we also need help with light landscaping and maintenance projects. Volunteers are needed the second Saturday of every month, March through November.

Creative Media Volunteer: Put your photography and video skills to use helping us document our education programs and special events. Needed weekdays and some weekends March-November.

Special Project Volunteer: We need volunteers with special skills that can be put to use to further our mission and enhance our work. Projects will be determined on an individual, as needed basis. But if you have something in mind, let us know! We are always looking for folks who can help with web design, construction projects, fundraising, etc. Time commitment is flexible and will be determined by the project.
