What should I bring?
We strongly recommend that volunteers wear closed-toed, sturdy shoes and hats. We may be working in hot, cold, or wet conditions so please dress accordingly. Bring your work gloves (if possible,) water bottle, snacks, jokes, songs, attentiveness.
Be advised that while volunteering you may encounter soil, insects, noxious weeds and prickly plants in the field.
We greatly appreciate your interest and willingness to lend us a hand. We aim to offer volunteers an opportunity to learn and develop farming skills. It is important that volunteers understand that field work tasks, from weeding to harvesting, require a high level of attentiveness, detail orientation, and awareness.
