Volunteer Opportunities

  At MCF we offer both individual and group volunteer opportunities. We love working with our CSA members and other community members in our fields and sharing our passion for growing food. Our volunteers help with all aspects of production from seeding, to planting, and harvesting and everything in between.


Please note:
 The Medway Community Farm's Board of Directors is seeking additional members. Please see below for more details and consider joining in this important capacity.





Corporate/School/Community Volunteer Groups

Several times a year we are grateful to host large groups of volunteers from local organizations. It's amazing what a group can accomplish is just a few hours! To volunteer with groups larger than 6 please email us at volunteer@medwaycommunityfarm.org to make arrangements



Community Events
:
Each year MCF hosts several community events and fundraisers. If you'd like to volunteer your time or services at one of our events,

Regular Volunteer Opportunities:

We categorize our volunteer opportunities into specific tasks, so you can know what to expect and sign up for the task that is most exciting to you. Most tasks have multiple slots so you can sign up with friends or family. Some tasks require special training, like animal feeding, so be sure to read the sign-up page for specific instructions.
