Nursery Volunteers – posted 8 March 2021
It’s time to get our cut flowers and herb seeds ready to plant and we are in need of some extra hands!
We are looking for a few people for a few hours a day to help us seed, water, transplant, and care for our herbs and flowers. These hours are part of our volunteer program and will count toward merit-based perks here on the farm. You will be trained on how to properly handle and care for our organic (and sometimes rare) plants. All you need is willing hands and some clothes you can get dirty in!
