Be a Farm Volunteer!

groupCome be a part of your community and get out in nature, right in the city! We offer opportunities for groups as well as individuals.

Volunteer Days

We will have several volunteer days throughout the 2019 season. If you're interested in a regular commitment, check out our City Farmers program.
Farm work varies almost as much as the weather and as a volunteer, you may be asked to do anything from planting seeds and weeding to painting or building. Our staff is always available to offer guidance and answer questions along the way.

Volunteer Groups

We host a limited number of volunteer groups on the farm during the growing season. Due to the high demand for our limited spots, we typically focus on working with groups representing community-based organizations and businesses that are interesting in forming a partnership with Common Good City Farm.

Participants engage in farm tasks (planting, harvesting, weeding, composting etc.) and learn about sustainable agriculture and our food system through discussions. This is a great team-building and bonding experience for groups and a meaningful way to contribute towards urban agriculture and healthy food access in our neighborhood.

We host groups of up to 15 people and ask groups that are able to to make a donation of $10 per person to help sustain our programs. We ask larger companies to make a tax-deductible contribution of $500 or more to help support our work and community.

Throughout the season (March - November), we typically host volunteer groups for 2-3 hour sessions. If you are interested in scheduling a group please fill out our interest form.
