Community Engagement Team

Do you love talking to folks about the importance of local food and farmland? Are you an active social media poster? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, this opportunity is a great fit for you! Join our Community Engagement Team to champion our work at local community festivals and farmers markets, or help promote our events or initiatives online to help engage the public about our work.

On the Farm Team

In addition to protecting farmland, we steward and care for the land so that it thrives into the future. That means we frequently need help pulling weeds or planting trees and shrubs in order to keep our farmland healthy. Sometimes, we offer opportunities to help glean produce from farms to be donated to local food banks. If you enjoy rolling up your sleeves and getting outside for a great cause, this opportunity is a great fit for you.
