  • Farm Volunteer Day

    March 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

    Description:Come volunteer at the farm!
    What to wear:
    Please dress appropriately for farm work in clothing you don’t mind getting dirty.
    Please wear close-toed shoes.

    What to bring:
    A personal water bottle, hat, sunscreen, and gloves are recommended.

    What you’ll do:
    Farming is hard work. Workdays typically include light to medium physical labor, including lifting and carrying up to 20lbs, raking, weeding, mulching, and turning compost.
    Stop for a water break and a rest whenever you need one! It’s very important to stay hydrated and comfortable.

    Weather:

    Volunteer work at the garden is subject to weather conditions.
    Rain/Thunder/Lightning: Rain before or during scheduled volunteer times may force the cancellation of the workday.
    Heat: If there is a “heat advisory,” farm work will continue, but volunteers may want to consider rescheduling their work. If a “heat warning” is forecast, volunteer activities will be canceled.
    Cold: If the daytime temperature is forecast to be less than 45 degrees, volunteer activities will be canceled.
    Each volunteer should decide whether to work on a given day based on their personal limitations and comfort level.
