Volunteer at 21 Acres
There are many fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities at 21 Acres. These range from time on the farm and in the educational gardens, to assisting with research on green building and living projects, or interacting with the public by leading tours. Saturday work party projects are some of our favorite times. Our staff thoroughly appreciates collaborating with volunteers and we often find ourselves learning alongside each other as we tackle projects together. There are plenty of activities for individuals and we also host service and team building days for both youth and adult groups. Volunteering builds community – We relish these days as they are some of the most dynamic times with lots of laughter and camaraderie!
On the Farm
Help out on the farm! Learn all about the crops and the methods used to grow them. Take part in planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting.
In the Kitchen
Volunteer with our kitchen team and gain experience working with local ingredients. Learn valuable kitchen skills and have some fun while you’re at it.
Help out in the building, greet visitors, give tours, volunteer during special events, and much more!
Curious about new sustainable projects and technologies? Help new sustainable projects get off the ground, or help existing ones as we learn together about green living solutions.
Have an idea for a project you want to try? Or, join an existing project: restoring wetland, mulching, and converting chest freezers to refrigerators, among others.
