If we have already agreed on a date and time, please list it here. Otherwise, indicate three dates you have in mind or days of the week that generally work for your group. Tuesdays-Saturdays preferred. Let me know if you are looking for a one-time or ongoing event. Our general volunteering time is 9am-12. Sometimes we can make exceptions and schedule an afternoon.
Age of Volunteers
We have opportunities for all age groups. Volunteers with the Community Lot Team must be 14+. Volunteers under 14 are welcome at Real Food Farm when accompanied by an adult. Please be specific with age of minors. If all are 18+, write "adults."
On certain days we can handle groups as large as 50, but 50 is our maximum. Groups of 25 or fewer are preferred.
Are there projects your group is particularly interested in? Is your group working on food justice, food access, sustainability, urban agriculture, gardening or other topics/issues related to our programs?
We will keep your interests in mind, but we cannot guarantee a certain project. We also have to consider the season, weather, needs of our programs, workload, and/or budget.
Special needs or considerations:
If none, write "N/A." Individual volunteers will inform us of any allergies on their waivers.
Do members of your group have any skills relevant to the volunteer project.
Such as landscaping, gardening, carpentry, etc.
