Group Volunteer Opportunities

We love hosting organizations and groups for volunteer work days! Our farms and programming benefit so much from our community’s engagement, and volunteer groups help us accomplish bigger projects and tasks at the farm – many hands make light work!

We have hosted groups from:

      • Salesforce
      • Harmless Harvest
      • Clif Bar
      • California Climate Action Corps
      • Premiere Nutrition Company
      • Clorox Foundation
      • Fam 1st Foundation
      • The Greenlining Institute
      • The Table Catering
      • And More!

Please note, for volunteer groups we are asking for a financial contribution relative to your organization size in addition to time spent volunteering with us.

If you are reaching out on behalf of a volunteer group (6+ more individuals), please fill out the group volunteer request form below and our volunteer coordinator will follow up with you for next steps! Thank you!
