Howdy!

Join Farms to Grow, Inc for a "Fresno - Farm Field Project" outdoor experience on Wednesdays or/and Saturdays, 7:00am - 11:30 pm. If you are looking for a way to make an impact and learn farming traditions from an elder, this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.

You will be assisting an experienced farmer who recently secured a large contract for his produce, after years of facing numerous obstacles and discrimination. This is a unique opportunity to learn and support an incredibly deserving and knowledgeable farmer.

If you are skilled in carpentry, mechanics or electrician we can sure use you help!

Put on your hat, wear a mask, enclosed shoes and garden gloves to join the team. Groups welcomed!

Let's play in the dirt!
