Become a Farm Volunteer
Keeping the farm ready for visitors requires work & dedication each and every day. Learning Tree Farm welcomes all individuals and groups that want to help support our mission by donating their time and talents.
There are a variety of tasks that volunteers can help with at the farm. Garden work – planting, weeding, and harvesting, is the primary need from Spring to Fall. We also need volunteers to keep our wooded trails clear, clean stalls, help with fundraisers and other community events, and more!
Join us every Wednesday, as you are available from 10:30am-1:30pm. While working the entire time is not required, we do ask for a minimum of 2 hours each visit. The Farm is seeking volunteers to help mostly in the garden to plant, weed, and maintain this educational space. However, there may on occasion be tasks around the farm, or possibly in the woodlands. Tasks will vary from week to week.
Volunteers should be comfortable being outside.
For garden tasks a volunteer should be able to bend over, knee/sit on ground. Animal volunteers should be comfortable with animals and their manure, and be able to lift 50 pounds. Volunteers in woodlands should be comfortable walking, able to bend, lift, pull plants, and be comfortable using hand clippers.
*Children 15 and under are encouraged to volunteer, but should be supervised by an accompanying adult.
