Individual Volunteers

Sign up for an orientation below to learn more about volunteering at Red Wiggler! Orientations take place every 2-3 weeks at the farm, and last for approximately one hour. If you don't see an orientation below that works for your schedule, email volunteer@redwiggler.org to find an alternative. 

Note that during the main growing season (April through early November or so), volunteers are needed Monday - Friday, from 9-12 pm or 1-3 pm. We almost never offer evening or weekend volunteering. Volunteers under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Sign up for a Volunteer Orientation:

Steps to Volunteer

- Sign up for and attend an on-farm volunteer orientation (see above)

- Read our Volunteer Policies

- Complete a paper volunteer application (see link in green resources box above) and bring it with you to your orientation

- 18 or older? Submit your federal background check here

Once you've completed all the above steps, check out available shifts on GivePulse, our volunteering website. Please note that registering for a shift on GivePulse does NOT mean you are approved to come. You must receive an explicit approval email.
