Volunteer

Do you like working outdoors, meeting new people, learning new skills, and getting your hands dirty? If so, you’ll 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 through our Free Farm Stand and East Bay food banks. No experience necessary!

Farm work might include seeding in the greenhouse, weeding, harvesting crops, animal care, helping with repairs and assisting around the farm with other small and big projects. Remember to dress for the outdoors with appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes.

All volunteer days and work parties are open to small groups and individuals ages 12 and up. Children ages 12-18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Weekday Volunteer Opportunities

Got time during the week? Come to the farm to help us almost every Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning to help harvest and get ready for our weekly Free Farm Stand! Come excited to work and we’ll guide you on the rest. Please bring a water bottle, sunhat if sunny, and closed-toed shoes.

Tuesdays  2:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Wednesdays  9:00 – 11:00 a.m.

*Volunteers must arrive at 9:30 for volunteer orientation.

 

Monthly Volunteer Work Parties

Once a month, we hold volunteer parties for adults and families with kids on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 – 5:00 pm. There will be an interactive farm tour from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. and then we’ll work on the farm from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. These work parties are great opportunities to spend quality time exploring the wonders of the farm while helping grow food for those who can’t afford to buy it. We will end with time for snacks and schmoozing – bring your own snacks and some to share!

Adults

Get ready to work! Everyone 18+ will be working on key tasks that help us grow fruits and vegetables and maintain our educational campus – weeding, shaping, planting, seeding, mulching, digging. Bring a friend or come by yourself, we’re excited to have you.

Families with Children
Families with children 5 and older will split off and work separately with an Urban Adamah educator. Come help us care for animals, seed, plant trees, build with cob, create art for the farm, and more!

If you have questions about volunteering on the farm, or have a group of 7 or more people, please email our Assistant Farm Manager.

Group Volunteer Visits

We happily host school classes, congregations, alumni associations, and other groups at our farm, both to volunteer and to participate in programs. To learn more about setting up a group visit, please visit our Group Programs page or contact our Youth and Family Programs Educator
