City Green maintains two farm sites ... a five-acre farm in Clifton, NJ and a one-acre site in Eastside Park in Paterson, NJ, both just 20 miles from Manhattan. Through our farms and markets, we aim to address issues of food justice and food accessibility. We strive to grow the highest quality produce for our customers. To this end we believe that quality begins with what we put into the soil, how we care for it, choosing varieties that are renowned for vigor and flavor, good cultural techniques, and proper post harvest handling and storage. We use only Organically approved products and abide by Organic standards as much as possible.
City Green is seeking volunteers to work at our 5-acre farm, located in Clifton, New Jersey. Farm volunteers will assist our urban Farmer in completing farm tasks while learning basic concepts of organic food production. We rely heavily on farm volunteers each season to help us keep our farm productive and beautiful. Farm tasks will include: seed starting, planting, weeding, harvesting, and other farm maintenance as needed. This is a great opportunity to participate in a unique community project, enjoy the great outdoors, and get hands on farming experience.
No previous farming / gardening experience necessary. But, a willingness to get dirty, work with your hands, and a passion for learning, growing, and community building are!
Our Farming Volunteer Program runs every Wednesday, April 25th-October 24th. It will be from 5pm-dusk.
