FARM VOLUNTEERISM

There’s plenty to do on the Growing Hope Urban Farm and volunteers assist us every step of the way. Volunteers help sort seeds, propagate and transplant seedlings, water, weed, prepare garden beds, harvest and more. We have opportunities for individuals, student groups and employer-sponsored days.

Volunteer with us!
