The Accokeek Foundation's Ecosystem Farm is seeking workshare volunteers to assist with the daily tasks associated with running a permaculture design vegetable farm and food forest nursery. Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn more about all natural, regenerative agriculture practices while enjoying the fruits of their labor by sharing in the produce from the farm.
Depending upon the time of year and day of shift, duties may include: direct seeding, transplanting, propagating cuttings, prepping beds for planting, weeding, pest management, irrigating, harvesting, and maintenance of the farm's structures and fence lines.
Volunteers should be willing to commit to a regular schedule, but we are flexible and offer weekday, weekend, morning, and/or evening shifts.
