Volunteering opportunities are open to everyone. The farm benefits from volunteer help, however we hope that coming to the farm will be a learning experience and a fun, relaxing place to be.
Regular volunteer opportunities;
- Weekly work mornings led by grower or regular, experienced volunteer every Wednesday morning 10am-1pm and the first Sunday of the month 10am-1pm.
- Harvest morning on Thursday 10am-2pm; this is for the more regular volunteer, as harvesting is a special skill you will be given training on how to harvest each crop.
Our Workshare scheme allows a number of people to work 3 hours a week for a complimentary veg box
