Weeding at the Lynn Farm
Every year, The Food Project relies on thousands of volunteers to help us achieve our goal of creating a more just and sustainable food system. Whether you want to help your community, learn more about growing food, or just spend time outside, The Food Project offers many opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved.

In our Serve & Grow farm work volunteer program, individuals and groups visit our farms to help tend the fields. We hold three-hour volunteer sessions on weekday and weekend mornings at our farms in Boston, Lincoln, Lynn, and Beverly, Mass in the spring (April through June) and fall (September and October). Volunteers learn about The Food Project and our mission, and help with tasks such as planting, weeding, harvesting, washing vegetables, and preparing beds.

We work with over 3,000 volunteers on our farms each year. Our volunteers range from high school and college students experiencing service learning to corporate offices enjoying a day of team building to groups of friends escaping to the farm to spend some quality time together.

For schedules, please see our school and community group volunteering, corporate volunteering, and individual volunteering pages.
