Of course, there’s still many of the same activities including field work, educational activities, and fundraising events, so much of which will be much more successful if you join us! We’re also using biodynamic farming principles this year, so there’s lot of new farming techniques to learn and apply.
As you know, the farm depends on volunteers…please try to join us as we start the new farm year!
There’s also a volunteer work activity directly following the breakfast. We’ll be seeding up trays of flowers in the greeenhouse. Please sign up below to participate in that and future volunteer activities. To see all the activities, please click the down arrow to the right of the activity on the sign-up page. New activities will be added each month.

Want to get involved? Want to make a difference at the farm and in your community? We have a vibrant and well organized volunteer program. Maybe this is the year for you to get your hands in the dirt and to help sustain this unique and exciting project. Without volunteers, we couldn’t get all the work done. We are truly a community effort! We will be enhancing our volunteer program to increase your knowledge of farming. We’ll also teach you some biodynamic principles to use on the farm and apply at your homestead.
Two orientation dates have been set up for the Spring season: Sat., April 14th and Sun, June 3rd at 10:30 AM. At these orientations you will learn about the farm and the different activities and opportunities you can participate in. Please click the link below to sign up.
