Are you interested in spending more time with your hands in the soil at Great Song Farm?
We're excited to have folks show interest in our farming venture and support us with their time and
energy by volunteering on the farm throughout the season. Part of our vision for Great Song Farm is to be
a refuge where our community can connect with the natural world, and
experience where their food comes from, while also interacting with the vibrant community of people around them.
Because most of the work taking place right now is planning and
office-work, we will begin inviting volunteers to the farm starting
in April (which really isn't so far away!). For the month of April,
volunteer days will be:
Tuesdays 10-12 a.m.
Fridays 3-5 p.m.
Volunteer work in April and May will include preparing beds for
planting--raking and picking rocks from the field, seeding trays in
the greenhouse, transplanting, and other farm odd-jobs. Volunteer
work in June, July, and August, will include the above, but also be
focused on weed control, as well as harvesting and washing for CSA
pick-ups. You are more than welcome to bring your children (of
any age) with you to work with us on the farm.
We hope to cater the work a bit to the skills and interests of each of our volunteers, so as our relationship evolves, so will the work. We also
respect if people have physical limitations which restrict them from
certain movements (working on your knees, bending over, or lifting
heavy objects), and hope to be able to tailor the work to be
comfortable and sustainable for you. So long as you have an interest in working with us and
the earth, we can find work to support your needs and abilities.
