Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved in our work. Volunteers are the backbone of our organization, and we're often in need of new people.

You can also get involved by participating in one of our upcoming workshops or events, by following us and sharing our story, and by signing up to donate.

We hope to see you soon at one of our events or volunteer opportunities!

Volunteer

There’s lots of perks! Go home with beautiful food, or share in someone’s first harvest. We send out monthly-ish notices to all registered volunteers with upcoming opportunities to help. Common tasks are listed below.

  • Pick and distribute fruit and farm produce (July-October)
  • School garden youth engagement (March-October)
  • Welland orchard care (Year round)
  • Seed library organization and seed distribution (November-May)
  • Events and outreach (Year round)

We host 3 organization wide volunteer orientations each year, in February, May and September. Project specific orientations are held at the beginning of each project’s busy season (or as needed).
