Volunteer Days

It’s amazing how much you can learn in just a few hours working at the Farm!

If you’ve always wanted to find out more about The Talking Farm but weren’t sure how, this is it! Volunteer days are a great chance to immerse oneself in nature and build our food community. It’s like taking a condensed class in horticulture, history, and sustainability

Volunteer Days are open to the public and there is no need to register or RSVP.

Volunteering is Easy!

Tools, gloves, and water (but bring a water bottle) are provided to you, dress for the weather in casual clothes and closed toe footwear. If you have any questions contact the farm info@thetalkingfarm.org . This calendar reflects the most current schedule. If you haven’t signed a waiver, either download a form and bring it with you, or sign a form when you get to the Farm. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian. *Please see our new 2017 fee schedule for volunteering below.

Corporate/Team-Building/Custom Volunteer Opportunities
