Grow Nashua Volunteer Application
Greetings, we're so glad you're here and interested in building a more resilient food system and environment for our shared community.
Volunteer opportunities are a great way for families and neighbors to work together helping Grow Nashua create a more reliable and just future one neighborhood at a time!
See current open Volunteer Position Descriptions below. Then complete the questions that follow.
Gardens require love throughout the growing season to stay vibrant and bountiful for all who visit. Your role as Garden Tender would be to provide care to one of these gardens and to those who visit these beautiful growing spaces! You may participate in a specific site update project or regular tidying, raking, planting, chatting with families about their needs, answering questions of passerby about joining in on the fun, and educating about what is growing in the gardens. This is a great activity for individuals, couples, and families to all do together and occurs weekly from April through September!
Veggie Couriers will assist with produce collection and distribution for the Lil’ Free Farmstand and/or the Veggies at Home programs. Both of these programs share fresh produce, recipes, and nourishment with families in need in our community. This position requires a vehicle and occurs weekly from July through October.
We are always looking for new ways to effectively market and communicate the work we do in the community. If you have digital skills in areas like graphic design, social media marketing, SEO, Google Adwords, database management, and website management we'd love your help! This assistance would not only spread the good word of what we are achieving and free us up to do more hands-on work around improving food access and building a stronger community for Nashua!
*Lil’ Free Farmstand Greeter*
Our Lil' Free Farmstand operates once per week in three different Nashua neighborhoods. The greeter will welcome our neighbors to the farmstand, answer questions, and keep the stand stocked and organized during open hours. One of our favorite roles to do ourselves and meet our Nashua neighbors!
