Volunteer

Our Workshare Volunteers help fulfill our mission of connecting people to the land to build community and inspire lifelong stewardship. Land’s Sake Farm relies on support from the surrounding communities in many ways, and volunteers are a vital piece of how we get the job done.

If you are interested in becoming a Land’s Sake Workshare Volunteer, please first review the position descriptions below and decide what would be the best fit for you. Please note that our staff are only able to support a certain number of workshare volunteers in a given area, and slots may fill quickly. The department manager will contact you to discuss the volunteer program and position further and agree on schedule commitments. Please wait to sign the agreement until directed to do so by our Farm Team. If you have questions about our volunteer opportunities, please contact us at info@landssake.org. Thank You in advance for your support and can’t wait to get farming!

Workshare Volunteer Policies 

All Workshare Volunteers are subject to the following policies: 

  • Workshare Volunteering begins early June and continues through to the end of October, to fit the twenty-week schedule of the CSA and farm season. Arrangements may be made in advance with the farm team to adjust your individual schedule, but we ask to keep continuity throughout the season.
  • Similarly, if you are ill, injured, or have an emergency that will cause you to miss your shift, please contact a department manager as soon as possible via email or phone. 
  • Workshare Volunteers are expected to arrive and end their shifts on time. Multiple absences or lateness may result in being asked to leave the program. 
  • Farm work can be physically strenuous and workers may be subject to sudden weather changes. We recommend dressing in layers with long sleeves and pants, wearing closed toed shoes, and bringing a hat. We also recommend bringing sunscreen, plenty of water, snacks if desired, rain gear if needed, and gloves if preferred.
