Volunteer with us!

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!


There are plenty of perks to volunteering! You could go home with beautiful food, or share in someone’s first harvest, you could even sow a garden’s seeds and help upkeep it through the season. To volunteer, register on our Gleaning Hub below, and choose projects you’re interested in helping with. Such as: Fruit Tree Project, Growing Schools, Welland Orchard, etc. Common volunteer tasks are listed below.

  • Pick, sort and distribute fruit and farm produce (July-October)
  • Welland orchard care (Year round)
  • Seed library organization and seed distribution (November-May)
  • Events and outreach (Year round)

We aim to 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).
