ON YOUR COMMUNITY FARM!
Do you like working outdoors, meeting new people, learning new skills, and getting your hands dirty? If so, you will love volunteering with us! Urban Adamah relies on volunteers to help us grow the thousands of pounds of produce we harvest every year and donate to local food pantries, partner organizations and those in need in our community!
No experience necessary!
Farm work may include weeding, harvesting crops, turning compost, maintaining spaces for the goats and chickens, helping with repairs, and/or assisting with other fun projects around the farm. Remember to dress for the outdoors with appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes.
All volunteer days and work parties are open to small groups, families, and individuals ages six and up. Younger folks (ages 6 – 18) must be accompanied by an adult.
Weekday Volunteer Opportunities
Extra time during the week? Come to the farm to help us every Tuesday! Come excited to work and we’ll guide you on the rest. Please bring a reusable water bottle, sunhat if sunny, and closed-toed shoes.
Tuesdays 1:00 – 4:00 PM
Monthly Volunteer Work Parties
Once a month on Sunday from 1:00 – 5:00 PM, we hold a Volunteer Work Party for adults and families with children. Join us at 1:00 PM to sink your hands in the soil at and get to know you community urban farm. This is a great opportunity to spend time exploring the wonders of the farm while helping grow food for those who do not otherwise have access to healthy produce.
If you have questions about volunteering on the farm, or have a group of 7 or more people, please contact the Public Programs Director, Sasha Hippard.
