  • Help

    Help

    General help with gardening, farm chores and summer farm activities.

    Volunteers will begin the day with basic tasks such as caring for goats or weeding the garden. Then we all eat breakfast together before breaking off into what needs to be done that day. The volunteer will learn about what it takes to run each aspect of the farm and how to sustain a self-sufficient community.
