  • 10 people are interested

COSI, central Ohio’s premier Center of Science and Industry, will host the 17th annual Farm Days: Little Seeds, Big Tractors event from Wednesday, August 10th until Sunday, August 14th. Farm Days will bring a variety of farm equipment to COSI for families and children of all ages to explore firsthand. COSI anticipates that over 15,000 people will visit Farm Days to increase their knowledge of agriculture through fun, hands-on educational activities.

We are looking for adult (ages 18 and above) volunteers to be a part of this worthwhile community outreach by bringing your enthusiasm and knowledge of agriculture and farm-life to the thousands of families attending. Agriculture knowledge is great but not required! Together we can make a difference by increasing the community’s knowledge about our important agricultural resources. Farm Days also presents the perfect opportunity to fulfill service hours in a meaningful way! If you do have farming experience, we 'd love to have you attend and speak to guests about how farming actually works. Additional details will be provided closer to the event date.

Please wear closed toed shoes and bring a water bottle during your volunteer shift
