    Guidelines For Schooner Farms Volunteers & Interns

    Please remember that the farm is the farmer’s home as well. Be respectful and follow the guidelines set by Schooner Farms. Be careful when you are in the field to ensure that you do not disturb the plantings or soil. Be alert. While we all enjoy the company of our farmers, please allow the farmer to do his/her work with a minimum of disruption. Your safety is YOUR responsibility. Be alert and work in a safe manner. Do not take on more than you are able to handle. Don’t take chances. Watch for hazards! Volunteers must maintain good hygiene practices. Wash your hands frequently. As we all know from the news, produce may become contaminated by poor hygiene and cause food borne illness. There are specific good practices for post-harvest handling of produce to ensure safety, quality and appearance. You will receive training on this. Be on time! Please remember that the farmer is relying on you to be there when expected and to stay for the number of hours you have committed. If you are volunteering on share-packing days, remember- you are part of the planned work crew. Share distribution may be delayed if you do not show up! Dress in work clothes. Dress for the weather. Bring natural insect repellent/sunscreen if you will be outside in buggy weather. Bring drinking water, snacks and/or lunch - as appropriate to your assignment. If instructions are not clear, please ask. Volunteers must attend a pre-season on-farm training session. You will be notified of the training date. Volunteers must sign the volunteer log at the farm on each volunteer day to record hours. You are responsible for documenting your hours. If possible, identify another CSA member to serve as an alternate for you. That person should also attend the pre-season training. If you cannot come on your assigned day/time because of an urgent situation, please contact your alternate, or another CSA member. We will provide you with a list of people who have agreed to serve as substitutes. Call the volunteer coordinator and let her know who will be coming in your place, so the coordinator can notify the farmer.
