Don’t worry! There is no skill test for you to help us in the garden! We are just excited to have a helping hand. Who knows. Maybe we’ll need your assistance outside the garden too.

Volunteer: Individuals

We would love to have your help in the garden. The Food Initiative hosts “Community Dig Days” in the spring and fall. They might be the perfect fit for you.

Community Dig Day dates are listed below. Check them out and choose which date(s) works for you.

If you are interested in volunteering outside of a Community Dig Day please email Michael Hampton at michael@thefoodinitiative.org.

Volunteer: Groups

The more, the merrier! The Food Initiative is ready to host groups from schools, businesses or social groups that are interested in building community, health, agriculture or simply just want to give back.

We are happy to set up a week day, an afternoon or weekend day for your group to come help out at the farm. Tasks will vary depending on the time of year.

To schedule a volunteer day for a group, please email Michael@thefoodinitiative.org.

Volunteer: Committee

The Food Initiative is currently seeking member involvement in its committee work. Committees typically meet monthly in person or via teleconference call.  Meetings usually take no more than an hour.

Throughout the year, The Food Initiative Board of Directors and Staff need the support of committees for events and fundraising.

We currently are looking for committee members to help with two events: our Hog Roast and Fine Fettle, a farm-to-table fundraiser.

Please email regina@thefoodinitiative.org for more information on how you can get involved.
