Volunteers

As you explore the website think about how you might best fit into the work and what you would like to get out of the experience. Below you can find some of our current volunteer needs though we are always open to new ideas and skills. Because this project is multi-faceted and built on developing relationships with the farmers, we prefer volunteers who can make a longer-term commitment
