Westgate Community Farm

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

Join us at our urban farm to plant, harvest and care for our crops while learning about all aspects of a community- focused organic farm! We are open to the public Wednesday- Saturday and host volunteers throughout the week as well as during our Saturday Community Workday. We welcome individual volunteers and volunteer groups to join us in a variety of tasks on the farm from harvesting to planting to weeding, to beautification projects. We offer hands-on instruction and a Q and A with the farmers as well as opportunities for tasting and reflection. On site we have a port-potty, potable water, a shade structure, picnic tables, plentiful parking and gloves and tools. We can offer tastes of anything we have in season. We ask volunteers to wear close-toed shoes and bring hats, sunscreen, appropriate work clothing and a water bottle. We have produce for sale at our on-site market on Saturdays and Thursdays. We like to send volunteers home with some produce from the farm for volunteering as well. Look forward to working with you!
