About

The Accokeek Foundation is seeking workshare volunteers for the growing season. If you are interested in the principles of sustainable agriculture and farm market operations, and are able to commit to 2 - 4 hours per week, then join the Ecosystem Farm Workshare Corps. As a workshare corps volunteer, you will receive a weekly share of produce in exchange for the opportunity to be stewards of the land, and working on a nonprofit, educational farm operation as you learn about growing produce, raising chickens and egg production, permaculture, and farming sustainably.

We are looking for both field crew members to help with everyday farm tasks such as planting, weeding, irrigation, pest management, and harvesting, as well as market crew members to help staff farm markets throughout the season.

Field crew shifts are available Tuesdays, Thursday, and Fridays, and market crew shifts are available on Saturdays.

No previous farming experience is necessary, just a willingnes to learn and dig in the dirt.
