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!

Volunteer opportunities vary throughout the year and mostly between 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. There are lots of ways to get involved – see below how you can become a member of our team!

Farm Volunteers

We are currently putting our farms to rest for winter and volunteer shifts will be on hiatus through March 2017. In the meantime, fill out a volunteer application and we will get in touch in soon. Sign up for our newsletter to stay informed about new shifts and opportunities!

Are you looking to take your first steps into the world of urban farming or support schoolyard-grown produce? Do you want to learn how to grow your own, or share your existing knowledge with our farms? Whatever the case may be, we’d love to have you join our Garden Helpers crew! These shifts are a fun and dynamic opportunity to get involved with our schoolyard farms, get outside and grow your gardening skills.

Please note:

  • We ask that all volunteers commit to at least one shift per month.
  • 3 hour weekday shifts are scheduled within the hours of Monday-Wednesday, 9am-5pm
  • 2 hour evening shifts are held every other Thursday, 6pm-8pm
