Our farm is deeply rooted in the community and relies on its support. Over past years the farm has had about a hundred volunteers per season who help in different capacities depending on their personal talent and ability. This includes a huge diversity of people. There are for example young kids together with their parents, teenagers, retirees, people with special abilities accompanied by their support workers, busy students, part time workers and shift workers, singles and couples, international exchange students…and this only names a few. Aside from the “newcomers” each year, many of them have been volunteering at the farm for years.
Our volunteers often spent a good part of their shifts directly with the animals. They always work hard in their own time to help us take care of the animals, provide information to the visitors, keep the farm clean and tidy and of course give the animals lots of love. Through this commitment and dedication they have really become a precious part of our farm team. As the farm is solely funded by donations, their volunteer work is simply invaluable to us and helps us greatly to keep the farm running. They all do a tremendous job; the farm would not be the same without them. Our awesome volunteers really help to make this little farm a happy, safe, friendly and inclusive place. They make it feel complete.
Unfortunately due to the health risks presented by COVID-19 we were unable to have our volunteers join us to work at the farm the last two seasons. We really missed their great work and awesome spirit and we are totally aware how much they must be missing their time at the farm.
UPDATE FOR THE SEASON OF 2023:
While we are making plans for this new farm season we are looking forward to welcome our experienced volunteers back as well as having the pleasure again to train new volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering at the farm:
Once the farm opens in March to the public, drop by and talk to the staff to get more information and possibly pick up a volunteer application and get signed up for a training workshop.
We are looking forward to welcome you to our farm family!
