Volunteer with Us
Open Volunteer Hours for 2022 have begun!
Volunteering with The Talking Farm will immerse you in nature and teach you how to grow food sustainably. As a volunteer, you will have a direct contribution to the development, cultivation, and harvest of the Howard Street Farm.
Open Volunteer Hours for Individuals & Groups of up to 4 People
Volunteering is easy! For individuals and groups of up to 4 people, we will host you during Open Volunteer Hours on Wednesdays between 1-4 pm beginning March 30th, 2022. If you’re interested in volunteering, just show up, or even better, give us the heads up by emailing TTF Educator & Programming Coordinator Matt Perutz at email@example.com to let him know you would like to sign up and join.
When you come to the Howard Street Farm to volunteer, we will integrate you into a variety of age- and ability-appropriate farm tasks. We will provide you with tools, gloves, and instructions. Just dress for the weather, wear closed-toe shoes, and get ready for a rewarding day of working outdoors. There is a one-time $10 fee per person for first-time volunteers and all volunteers must sign a waiver (any volunteers under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver on their behalf).
If your schedule is more flexible, be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram social media accounts and watch out for last-minute calls for volunteers.
