Get your hands dirty and volunteer with us!

In 2020, 522 volunteers completed over 2,000 hours.

Volunteers are a vital part of the success of Growing Places Indy. If you enjoy getting your hands dirty, working outdoors, learning new skills while contributing to the community, we welcome you to join us. Our volunteers help perform many tasks, including weeding, harvesting crops, seeding, and removing debris. Volunteer workdays are held every month, from April through October. No experience necessary, just a positive attitude and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and dig in!


During the growing season, we have regular shifts on the farm throughout the week. There are typically additional opportunities to help with special projects and programs, depending on the time of year.


To ensure the safety of staff and volunteers, we limit group volunteers to 10 people. If you’d like to bring a group to the farm, please email a request to, including a proposed day and time.
