We are so lucky for his dedication to her!
Volunteer activities can include (but are not limited to) filling water buckets, mucking stalls and paddocks, spending one-on-one time socializing and grooming specific animals, and other animal care needs of the day.
In Spring through Fall, volunteers can also opt to work with our plant-life, performing tasks such as starting/planting seedlings, watering and weeding crop beds, and working to learn about organic practices.
Additonally, volunteers can propose activities outside the realm of animal or plant care that match personal skills, such as leading tours during our public Farm Days, taking high-quality photos or videos of our animals, creating fundraisers, or offering workshops on topics related to our mission.
Volunteer hours are available 8am-12pm Tuesday-Saturday. We ask that volunteers commit to at least one regular day each week, and stay for at least an hour.
We completely understand that emergencies and inclement weather occur, so if you will not be able to make your regular time, please let us know in advance via email.
For safety and liability purposes, all volunteers must be at least 10 years of age, no exceptions. Volunteers under 14 will need a parent with them at all times. Volunteers under 18 will need a parent to accompany them on their first visit.
Closed-toe shoes are required, and boots are strongly recommended. Clothing is likely to get dirty, so keep that in mind when deciding what to wear! Work gloves are also a fantastic idea if you have them available.
The majority of animal-care activities are labor intensive, so please notify us in advance if you are unable to perform certain tasks.
