Volunteer needed at our farm in North Reading
Part time – flexible hours

Do you enjoy planting seeds in the spring and nurturing them for transplanting into the garden? Do you appreciate being outside while having some chickens and a few other farm animals around? 

If so, then join a local non-profit that supports adults with disabilities. Our organic farm has been operating for about 7 years providing supplemental vegetables and herbs for the folks we serve. Here you will help with seeding, planting, staking, watering, pruning, weeding, harvesting and cleaning of vegetables. And, at the end of the day, you will have access to enjoy the organic harvest that we cultivate.

  • Be at least 18 years old 
  • Be able to pass a background check
  • Be able to lift up to 30lbs
