Howdy!

Join Farms to Grow, Inc for a Farm Field Day outdoor experience. If you are looking for a way to make an impact, learn farming traditions from an elder, this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you. The volunteer team will meet at Scott Family farm in Fresno CA to assist Mr. Scott in managing his crop production.

Put on you hat, enclosed shoes and garden gloves for a day of weeding & planting.

We enforce social distance, wearing a mask and gloves. Bagged lunch is available.

Let's play in the dirt!
