Volunteer on the farm
Join us on the farm, Get your hands dirty and learn how to grow local food...
We are setting up farms in the city to take a step towards providing green productive spaces for community to connect with the origins and the process of growing good, clean, local food!
So, needless to say we have lots of volunteer sessions available - it's a great way to be involved! Our farm is a fully operational market garden run by our managers Michael Zagoridis and Emma Bowen, and the sessions signed up for here involve working with our team on day-to-day work.
This includes undertaking a range of jobs from weeding, seed-raising, planting, coop cleaning, watering, mulching, compost-turning, repairs and organisation, among others. The jobs involved will vary from week to week - please note we cannot guarantee particular tasks on any given day.
Children are welcome, however must be accompanied and supervised by their parents or guardian. Volunteers with disability are also invited to join us - if a carer is needed please ensure that they attend with you. Advise us in the notes below of special needs and we will do our best to find a job that suits.
Please BYO gloves, hat and water bottle. Wear sturdy enclosed shoes.
By registering below your place is confirmed in the volunteer session for the date chosen. (We no longer send a confirmation email - you will only hear from us prior if the session is cancelled for weather or other reasons).
We look forward to seeing you on the farm soon.
Note: Sessions are moving back to their previous times of an hour earlier with the arrival of spring.
