Volunteer
Help us grow our educational farms

Thank you for choosing Fresh Roots! Our organization was started by a dedicated group of volunteers, and everything we do, any impact we have, is thanks to the work of people who choose to volunteer and work towards Good Food For All with us!

Farm Volunteers

Our farms rest for the winter from November until March.

Starting in spring 2018, we will be launching Community Volunteer Days! Community Volunteer Days are a chance to meet new people, get your hands dirty, and help Fresh Roots complete important farm tasks. Complete the interest form and we’ll contact you when the Community Volunteer Days schedule is available!
