Committed Workshare Program
Cohort 5, Spring '18:
We are currently accepting applications for our fifth cohort of workshare members! The Spring season will run from April 2nd - June 29th. Workshare members are asked to work one 3 hour shift a week through the season. Tasks will include (but not limited to): planting, harvesting, weeding, as well as light construction and aquaponics system maintenance. Shift options are 8am-11am Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
In exchange, volunteers receive:
- A vegetable share at every work shift
- The opportunity to learn about sustainable agriculture and aquaponic growing methods
- A meaningful volunteer experience and engagement with the local farming community
We are looking for:
Reliable and motivated members with a sincere interest in learning about sustainable agriculture and aquaponic growing methods. Members must have the ability to work outside in varied conditions and lift at least 30lbs. Attention to detail and the ability to work independently are crucial. Previous farm experience is not needed - we will train you on everything you need to know.
If you are interested in applying, please contact our volunteer and workshare coordinator, Jess Stevens at firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline to apply for the Spring cohort is April 1st. Please include your shift preference and why you are interested in working with us!
If you are interested in getting involved, but think the committed workshare program is not the right fit-- we will be hosting regular tours and volunteer days that will be open to the public.
