Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Veggielution! We invite you to join us for any of our scheduled volunteer workdays.
On each workday, volunteers help with various tasks such as planting, weeding, composting, harvesting, and more. Your help is very important, as volunteers do the majority of the work on the farm. You don’t have to have any previous gardening experience, we will show you what to do. You don't need to sign up ahead of time, just arrive at the beginning of the workday. Volunteers get to take home some free produce too!
Things to Know
- Groups of 8 or more people must sign up ahead of time. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a group visit.
- RAIN POLICY: We will cancel workdays for continuous, heavy rain only. Cancellations will be posted on the main page of our website and our facebook page at least an hour before the start of the workday.
- All ages are welcome, however youth under 13 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday
8:30a – 12:30p
8:30a - 12:30p
2:00p - 6:00p
Join us for harvesting and other farm work. It’s great if you can stay for the entire workday, but we always welcome 1-2 hours of help. If you cannot stay for the entire work period let us know when you need to leave, so we can make sure to get you out of the fields on time. Generally we will harvest and do some farmwork on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with a full morning of just farm maintenance work (compost, greenhouse, weeding, pruning, planting and seeding, bed preparation) on Wednesdays.
10:00a – 12:30p
1:30p - 3:00p
12:30p - 1:30p
This is our most popular workday. Please make an effort to arrive on time. Sometimes we do big jobs that need a lot of hands at the same time, and other times we do lots of smaller tasks in small groups. You can try your hand at many different aspects of the farm, and there is always something new happening out here.
Community Service Hours
Many High School and College/University students attend our workdays to satisfy their community service requirements. If you are planning to do this, please bring whatever paperwork you need signed as we will only sign off on hours the same day they were completed. Also note that lunch does not count for service hours, though we highly encourage you to stay and enjoy it.
If you are a community service learner (receiving credit for school) and want to take home veggies, we ask that you purchase produce from the Farm Stand, as our free produce is reserved for volunteers who do not receive credit for their hours.
When You Arrive
Before you start volunteering, please come to the sign-in table at the front of the kitchen to complete and sign a Liability Waiver (everyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign their Liability Waiver). Each time you come to volunteer, sign in and out at the sign in table.
Saturday Potluck Lunch
After the Saturday workday, stay and unwind at the potluck lunch and get to know your fellow farmers. Please bring something to share so there is enough food for everyone. What to bring? You can bring something as simple as a few pieces of fruit or chips and salsa, or get as ambitious as you like with a home cooked main dish. We are all about healthy food, so please leave the junk food at home and bring some apples or oranges instead!

- Mandatory: Closed-toe shoes or boots
- A hat and sunscreen
- Water bottle
