Drop-In Volunteer Program

We are happy to announce that the Saturday drop-in volunteer program resumes on May 12, 2018. We recently experienced significant renovations at the farm. Therefore, much of the necessary work will include moving soil/compost, rebuilding planting beds, laying irrigation, weeding, and various other heavy chores.

We really appreciate all the assistance we receive from volunteers and are thrilled to welcome you back.
