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. 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. Learn more about work parties and experience how volunteering builds community – these are dynamic times with lots of laughter and camaraderie!

Spring means 21 Acres’ campus is a buzz with activities. Watch for details about a volunteer open house scheduled for Saturday, April 6, 2019.
