This is a seasonal and activity that does not require a long-term commitment with flexible scheduling.

The Needham Community Farm is looking for Farming Volunteers and Farm Manintenance Volunteers.

Farming Volunteers will assist with cutting, weeding, planting seedlings, washing, picking and packaging produce. Farm Maintenance Volunteers will assist with mowing, repairng and buidling new raised beds.

This is a great way to help a local non profit deliver its services to our community.
