Here at Just Roots we rely on volunteers to help get the work done. Our volunteers — whether individuals or groups — are one of our greatest assets and we value their participation!
Volunteers work on the farm for many reasons: to be close to the land; to participate in Just Roots’ mission of increasing local food access; for credit as a working member of the coop; as a community gardener; field experience; and SNAP ABAWD requirements. What speaks to you?
Dress for getting dirty! Wear clothes and shoes that you don’t mind filling with soil! Bring drinking water and sun protection. A Porta-Potty is available at the farm.
Individual Volunteer Drop-Ins:
Thursdays 9am-12:30pm (May 1–October 31)
You don’t need to call ahead or email us, just come ready to work with close-toed shoes, a water bottle and a positive attitude! We will put you to work with our team in a variety of different farm tasks.
Come when you can; work as much as you can. Stay for ‘feastival’ lunch when the work is done.
If you are not sure if you are suited to join in the physically demanding nature of farm work, please get in touch to see if we have other volunteer work that would be a better fit for you.
If you have a young person in your family looking for a volunteer opportunity, they are welcome here! Ages 13 years or older may come on their own; 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
If you are looking for regular weekly volunteer hours, we have work-trade options (farm work in exchange for vegetables).
Looking for a group volunteer project? We would love to have your group come and can accommodate up to 50 people. There are weekday and weekend opportunities.
To ask about any of these volunteer opportunities, email farm director Meryl LaTronica (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the Just Roots office (413.325.8969).
