Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Sweet Fields is a non-profit organic farm and sustainability center. Our mission is to make healthy and sustainable living easy and accessible. We also are working hard to create an enjoyable community gathering space where residents of Montgomery and nearby counties can come together to learn, meet their neighbors, and appreciate nature.
We are located at Norristown Farm Park, a public park and working farm in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. We are leasing 7 acres from Montgomery County, and will use these to offer fresh local produce to the community. Residents can pay for produce, work in exchange for produce as part of our work share program, and/or volunteer on the farm. In addition, we will offer educational and fitness events in the 18th century barn on the site that we are renovating.
In the next few years we plan on adding an orchard, a greenhouse, and a composting facility. After that, if expansion is possible, we will add more innovative attractions and services such as prepared foods, a healthy drive-thru, an edible garden scavenger hunt, and more. We are constantly coming up with new ways to make fruits and vegetables fun and delicious.
