  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 9 people are interested

Little Portion Farm depends greatly on the generous support of individual and group volunteers, both on and off the farm. There are a variety of tasks that volunteers may engage in, including planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, packing, and delivering food. There are also occasional carpentry or farm improvement projects with which volunteers can help staff. In general, you do not need extensive farming or gardening knowledge to be helpful! Come serve and enjoy the outdoors, learn about sustainable farming, and help us carry out our mission to care for the poor and protect creation!

Mission Statement

Little Portion Farm is a ministry of the Franciscan Friars Conventual that seeks to "hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor" by donating organic produce to local soup kitchens while using sustainable farming methods to restore the health of our land.

Description

Little Portion Farm is a ministry of the Franciscan Friars Conventual focused on providing fresh food to those in need while using sustainable farming methods to restore the health of our land. The 3-acre farm functions as an "agro-ecosystem," with a diversity of plants and habitats to support the life of this "little portion" of creation. As the food harvested from the farm will be donated to the Franciscan Center in Baltimore, the overarching mission of this ministry is, using the words of Pope Francis, to "hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor."

The farm is also meant to serve as a place of gathering, service, reflection, and education for the local community, cultivating a deeper appreciation of the beauty of the natural world and its interconnectedness, and realizing the Catholic call to serve the most vulnerable and protect creation. We welcome groups or individuals to come serve, learn, and reflect on our farm!
