Volunteer

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 through our Free Farm Stand and East Bay food banks. No experience necessary!

 Farm work might include weeding, harvesting crops, turning compost, maintaining spaces for the goats and chickens, helping with repairs, and assisting with other 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. All programming will be led by the farm team!

Weekday Volunteer Opportunities

Extra 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 reusable water bottle, sunhat if sunny, and closed-toed shoes.

Tuesdays  2:00 – 5:00 PM

Wednesdays  9:00 AM

Monthly Volunteer Work Parties

Once a month on Sunday from 1:00 – 5:00 PM, we hold an Interactive Farm Tour &  Volunteer Work Party for adults and families with children. Join us at 1:00 PM to learn about Urban Adamah’s history and farming techniques. Stick around after to sink your hands in the soil at our community Volunteer Work Party from 2:00 – 5:00 PM. 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 organic produce. We will end with snacks and schmoozing. Please bring snacks to enjoy and share!

Adults

Get ready to work! Everyone 18+ will work together to grow over 100 different types of fruits and vegetables. Volunteering may include any number of key farm activities such as weeding, planting, harvesting, shaping beds, mulching, watering, or animal care. 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 Farm Coordinator.

Group Volunteer Visits

We happily host school classes, congregations, professional teams, and other groups at our farm, both to volunteer and to participate in programs. To bring your group to the farm for an interactive tour and/or farming experience, please contact our Public Programs & Retreat Center Director.
