Lend a hand on the Heritage Farm! Help prepare for the growing season by volunteering. In early spring, learn how to mulch and create permanent beds for sowing vegetables. Later in the season, learn more about pruning and bed maintenance. Throughout the season, we’ll be processing food scraps into compost, seeding, and transplanting.
Volunteers must be 12 years of age or older. Volunteers under 14 years of age must be under the direct supervision of an adult.
