Volunteer

Want to spend some time with great people in a beautiful setting, working with
rich soil and healthy plants, in service to neighbors in need?

We hope so, because we’re looking for all kinds of volunteers – regulars, one-timers, and everything in between!

Connect with the earth.

We would love your help with Growing to Give tasks:

  • transplanting seedlings
  • weeding
  • mulching
  • and more!

No prior experience is necessary, and we promise you won’t be asked to use any heavy equipment.

Most of our harvesting is done by volunteers from the Merrymeeting Gleaner, the Androscoggin Gleaners, and the Cumberland Gleaning Initiative. These are volunteer groups that also harvest and glean at other nearby farms and farmers markets. They will be harvesting at Growing to Give on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings (once the first vegetables are ready to be picked – probably sometime in March!).  

Help build our community and get the word out

If you want to help, but being in the garden isn’t your thing, we also could use help with:

  • office tasks
  • data entry
  • fundraising
  • and more

(Some of the above would need to be done on the farm, but some of it could be done from your home.)

We are a family-friendly farm and encourage you to bring your children when you volunteer.
