As an organization that relies heavily on support from our community to do the work of the farm we are lucky to have such a loyal following of volunteers. Year after year we see many of the same groups who look forward to coming out to our farms to assist us in providing healthy and fresh locally grown produce to our local hunger relief partners. What better way to spend a cold winter day than to begin planning a visit out to our farms this spring, summer or fall?
As we head into the 2019 farming season we are excited to welcome both our loyal regular volunteers and the many new friends that we typically encounter throughout the year back to our farms. With that comes the need to begin organizing the schedule, we will begin taking Group Volunteer Scheduling Requests for our 2019 Season on Monday, January 14th.
Here are just a few of the comments from past visitors, come on out and join in the fun!
“Please keep doing fun, community-driven, food-related, volunteering projects like this!”
“The importance of caring and helping those in need makes me feel good knowing that my small part in this experience will make a part of their life a little better or easier. “
“The people are wonderful, the experience is wonderful and I’m thankful that my company allows us time to step away from our desks and do something good for such a worthy cause. Thank you to all the good folks there that do what they do everyday to ensure those less fortunate can get healthy food into their diets. Your work is so important and we ALL appreciate it and the opportunity to jump in and help every year.”
