Volunteers are very important to us here at RTB. They help us carry out our mission and enrich our lives at the farm, as we hope to do to theirs as well. There are two ways to volunteer at RTB:
- Mentor/Mentee: This requires a commitment from both the volunteer (mentee) and the team member from RTB (mentor). Weekly, consistent help is desired.
- Occasional help: We have a volunteer email list and a team member will send emails out intermittently asking for help with things like processing food in the kitchen (kimchi, Kraut, jams, jellies, sauces), working in the gardens both perennials and annuals (planting, cultivating, harvesting etc), livestock work (putting up hay, mucking stalls, fencing etc), educational and administration (writing, organizing, working events that support our bottom line).
If you are interested in helping at the farm, please send an email to Desa@roundthebendfarm.org Please let us know which option you would prefer, what your availability is, and any particular interests or skills that may be applicable.
Corporate and group volunteering is also available and can be a fun and meaningful team-building experience. Please email us for more information.
*Please note: Volunteers must be 16 years or older or accompanied by a parent/guardian.
We look forward to seeing you at the farm sometime soon!
