Group Volunteer Opportunities

From weeding to feeding happy hens and all sorts of farm projects in between, volunteering with a group at EarthDance is a great way to learn more about where your food comes from while helping feed your community. We accept groups ages 14 years+ and up to 30 total volunteers at a time. For more information, check out our Group Volunteer FAQ Page.

Please fill out this Google Form to request a Group Volunteer Opportunity.

Teen Volunteer Program

EarthDance offers a regularly scheduled volunteer opportunity for high school students on the farm. EarthDance engages students from a variety of schools through hands-on farm projects. Our goal is to provide young people with opportunities for team building, health education, and direct involvement in the Good Food Movement! Youth volunteers can also complete service learning requirements while learning about food’s journey from farm to fork.

This volunteer shift takes place on the first Saturday of every month from 9 a.m.-noon.

Service-Learning, Community Service, and Internships

Students can complete service learning requirements and internships with EarthDance, and the general public is welcome at EarthDance for community service hours. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Forrest for more info and find intern positions here.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

We welcome groups of all ages to the farm, but individual volunteer work is restricted to ages 14 and up. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up for a fieldwork volunteer opportunity listed below.  Got something else in mind? Let us know if you want to donate a particular skill or passion! We’re always looking for volunteers to help in our office and with farm maintenance, carpentry, landscaping, and machinery. Be sure to sign up for our volunteer mailing list at the bottom of this page! We’d love to send you beautiful pictures of the farm and fill you in on upcoming EarthDance events.
