Opportunities through Growing Places Indy and our GPI Winter Farmers Market:

Urban Farm Volunteers: Throughout the season, we are in need of 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 on the farm (maximum 20 participants) and will organize projects to accommodate groups of various sizes. Click here to sign up!

If you don’t see a time in our calendar that will work for your group, please let us know when you’d like to come to the farm by emailing volunteer@growingplacesindy.org.

Indy Winter Farmers Market: The IWFM needs volunteers every Saturday during market season (November through April) and offers three volunteer shifts every Saturday. Click here to sign up!

Shift 2: 9am-12:30pm to help with greeting shoppers, info table, activities in the “lil’ sprouts” area, supporting vendors, general cleanup, etc. (let us know if you’re an interested and talented face-painter, storyteller, or kids crafter).

Shift 3: 12:00pm-1:30pm to help with market teardown and vendor load out.
