Volunteer @ Fairview Gardens Farm

We believe there is no better way to learn than by getting out on the land and doing the real work of farming and educating. Join us on the farm!

Get involved

Building connections to land and to people are often talked about but too rarely experienced. Volunteering at Fairview Gardens Farm is an opportunity to build these connections through the only way possible: doing the hard work of farming and community building. It is something to be experienced, not just talked about. We invite you to join us to see for yourself!

Volunteer opportunities range from helping with farm-related tasks, like cultivation, planting, and harvesting, to educational and event-planning work. You will have the opportunity to help with all the facets of the organization!
