Volunteer With Us

We HEART volunteers! Do you have gardening skills to share? Be a mentor to a new grower. Do you love kids? Help us with Urban Farm School! Need to get your hands in the dirt? Come and weed!

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Green Thumb: spend the growing season mentoring a group of new gardeners. Flexible times and hours to be determined together with the group you mentor.
  • Teacher at Heart: Help us out with Urban Farm School! Groups of young people visit spring, summer, and fall. You’ll help guide activities, for instance planting lettuce, making a teabag, feeding the chickens, or looking at worms.
  • Weed Wacker: If you just like to get your hands in the dirt, we’ll set you up with a nice patch of weeds and you can enjoy some quiet time outdoors. Weedy Wednesdays are from 12-4pm.
  • Saturday Regulars: We have drop-in hours every Saturday! Want to come and hang out? demonstrate a skill? greet interested visitors? Pick the Saturday you want!
  • Spare Hands: Help us with many different jobs on Saturday, August 13! It’s Open Farm Day — when we usually see our highest number of visitors!
