Volunteer at the Farm!
In the summer and fall, Clark County Food Bank cultivates and harvests more than 80,000 pounds of carrots, squash, and other vegetables at our 78th Street Heritage Farm plot, as well as with many community growers. We rely on hundreds of volunteers annually to sustain this important hunger relief effort. Volunteering at the farm is perfect for individuals or groups, including families, school field trips, community groups and faith-based organizations. Farm work parties are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 am to noon throughout the months of June to November.*
*During the growing season, feel free to stop by to volunteer with our work parties anytime!
No prior arrangement is needed, except for groups of 6 or more.
Schedule a Special Volunteer Event
If you would like to arrange for a larger group, such as a school, business, or service organization, to come out and volunteer on our farm, we are open and flexible all throughout the growing season! Please contact us to arrange a volunteering event.
JOIN OUR FARM CREW
This summer, we are establishing a volunteer Farm Crew to help us expand our Farming & Gleaning Program throughout Clark County. Farm Crew members will be our go-to volunteers whenever a new farming volunteer opportunity arises.
What does this program look like?
We understand that time is important, and therefore this program is very flexible! There are many volunteer opportunities and no single event is "required." However, throughout the season we may need some extra hands at Heritage Farm or be allowed to glean on local farms outside of our regular Wed/Sat shifts. When this occurs, we will send a bulletin to our Farm Crew for help!
Timeline: June through November
- Volunteer work parties held at Heritage Farm every Wed. & Sat. 9 AM-12 PM
- Other CCFB farm work parties are scheduled as needed
- Gleaning events are held at request of local farmers
