How to prepare

Think safety, sun, and comfort! Please wear a mask to the farm. We work rain or shine, so please also wear weather-appropriate clothes and closed-toe shoes. Bring sunscreen and bug-spray if you’ll need it.

Bring a refillable water bottle– the farm has drinking water available, but we do not provide cups. We provide work gloves that you can borrow but feel free to bring your own. For safety and sanitary reasons, we ask that you do not bring dogs to the farm.

what to expect

All of our volunteer days kick off with an orientation circle followed by guided instructions on the day’s farm tasks. No two volunteer shifts are alike; depending on the season, you may expect to harvest okra straight from the fields, transplant onions, or scuffle hoe around a bed of zucchini. It is likely that if you come with a group  to volunteer, you’ll be split into different crews on the farm. We ask that you trust the process and build community! Urban Roots youth lead most shifts, so you are an important part of their leadership experience. Please come with an open heart and willingness to follow all instructions from youth and staff. Come prepared to work hard and have fun!
