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.

NOTE: Board of Directors is seeking Treasurer, please see below for more details.

CSA Discount Volunteer Program: We offer a $50 discount to our CSA members that sign up to complete 8 hours of volunteer work during the season. 

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 please email clerk@medwaycommuityfarm.org
