Please join us at Flanner House farm to assist us in our end of season projects!

In order to start off on the right foot next year and ensure a bountiful season, we will be working on final harvests, collecting irrigation lines, planting winter crops, and amending raised beds. No experience needed, no heavy lifting. For the most part, we are on our feet or bending occasionally.

All you need is a water bottle, a pair of gloves, and closed-toe shoes!

We will be holding an open garden on October 24th to connect community members to our farmers and volunteers! Please come through!

We accept volunteers Monday through Friday from 10am-2pm

Hope to see you soon!
