Volunteer

Urban Farm Volunteers: Throughout the season, we send out a weekly volunteer email  to individuals interested in helping us with our day-to-day or week-to-week work in order to learn more about how to grow food. There is no previous farm or garden knowledge required to volunteer with us.

Group Volunteers: In addition, we are able to host groups (maximum 20 participants) and will organize projects to accommodate groups of various sizes. If you are interested in organizing a group volunteer session, fill out this form.

Indy Winter Farmers Market: The IWFM needs volunteers every Saturday during market season (November through April) and offers two volunteer shifts. Volunteers can come Saturdays from 7:30am-9am to help with market set up and vendor load in or from 12:00pm-1:30pm to help with market teardown and vendor load out. Volunteers 21 years of age and older will be rewarded with a $5 Sun King gift card, courtesy of our IWFM partner Sun King Brewing. Interested parties should email IWFM Volunteer Coordinator Leslie for more information.
