Farm Work Parties

An extra set of “farmhands” is essential to any working farm! Friends of the Farms holds work parties out at the farm on the second Saturday of every month. Held between 10 am-2pm, work parties dig in on various projects, including landscape maintenance, fence installation and repair, irrigation systems, invasive plant removal, habitat restoration, farm building construction and event preparation.

These work parties are a great way to get out on the farm and learn what is growing!  Check our What’s Happening section to find out upcoming work party dates.

No special talent is needed, just a willingness to pitch in. Wear your work gloves and sturdy shoes.  It’s a real pleasure to work together on important jobs. We need you and welcome you!

Upcoming dates for farm work parties are as follows. All dates are on Saturdays from 10 am-3 pm and all work parties include a free, catered lunch provided by local caterer and farmer, Carol Rolf.
