Individual Volunteers

We could not do what we do here at Red Wiggler without volunteers helping in the fields, being willing to expand their skills, getting to know the Growers and sharing their expertise.  We are always looking for individuals who have the time and dedication to commit to Red Wiggler.

Who can volunteer?

We welcome volunteers of all backgrounds, experience levels and abilities. Our past volunteers have consisted of students earning service learning hours, teachers off during the summer holiday, retired adults, individuals with disabilities or injuries and many others.
We require that volunteers are able to follow directions, work well with others and complete tasks with limited supervision and prompting. 

An interest in farming is helpful and being comfortable working outdoors with many different people is paramount. All ages are welcome, however volunteers 13 years old and under should be accompanied by an adult. The ideal volunteer can commit to a regular schedule  of 20 hours or more over the course of a growing season however those interested in volunteering for less than 20 hours may still apply. 

When can I volunteer?

Volunteers are needed April- November, Monday- Friday 9am-2pm.

Are there volunteer opportunities other than farming?

Most of our opportunities are in the fields, doing the real farming work. However, we do have occasional opportunities for those interested in events, education and administrative work. Please contact Molly McCracken for further information.
