Volunteer at MHOF


Volunteering at Many Hands Organic Farm

We take one off individual and group volunteers all weekdays during the growing season, and a
little more irregularly during the winter. Volunteers should plan to work quickly, take direction
well, and enjoy all sorts of weather (much of which is not considered ideal). Then plan to enjoy
lunch with us and often a bag of food for your efforts. Volunteering at the farm is a great way to
understand both the vegetable and animal aspects of our farm.

We welcome educational and youth groups, and are happy to explore internship options with
students. Presently we have an intern from Clark University and last year we had an intern from
Mt. Holyoke College.

Working Shareholders
One of the essential constituencies of our workforce is working shareholders. For 4 hours of
work during the 22 week CSA summer season, the 5 week fall CSA season, and throughout the
winter if you desire (M, W, F mornings 8-noon), volunteers receive as barter one large share of
produce during the CSA season. Come for breakfast at 6:30 and stay for lunch. It is a good
opportunity for someone interested in learning the CSA process from a hands on perspective
(there are some animal chores too), and to become a part of our farm community. Vacations and
time off are encouraged. We are always looking for more working shareholders to help us with
the very large CSA harvest, and working shareholders become beloved members of our staff.
