ALL WEEKDAY VOLUNTEERING AT PARKER STREET SITE WILL BE CANCELLED STARTING SEPTEMBER 30th

Volunteer days are on pause starting September 30th while we move to our new farm home at 1151 6th Street, Berkeley. Check back on our website to find out when volunteering will re-start at the new site!

Join us on the farm! Our farm in West Berkeley relies on volunteers to help us grow the thousands of pounds of produce we harvest every year and donate through our Free Farm Stand and area food banks.

If you like working outdoors, meeting new people, contributing to the greater good, learning new skills and getting your hands dirty with satisfying farm work, you’ll love volunteering with us. Farm work might include seeding in the greenhouse, weeding, harvesting crops, animal care, helping with repairs and assisting around the farm with other small and big projects. No experience is necessary! Just bring your fun-loving attitude and we’ll train you on the rest. Remember to dress for the outdoors with appropriate clothing and closed-toe shoes.
