Our Serve & Grow program is great for school and community groups looking for service-learning opportunities. Bring your students or community group members to one of our farms to grow food for hunger relief organizations and local distribution.
In a three-hour program led by The Food Project staff, your students or groups will:
- Participate in educational games and discussions about the food system
- Cultivate and maintain the land
- Plant, tend, or harvest fresh vegetables
- Have fun outside
- Make a difference for those who lack healthy, affordable food in Greater Boston and on the North Shore
Please review our frequently asked questions about volunteering with The Food Project.
To cover the costs of staffing the volunteer program and distributing the produce that your group will help plant, care for, and harvest, we ask for a contribution of $10/person. Please be in touch if such a contribution is prohibitive to your group participating in Serve & Grow.
Our farms have been winterized for the season. Thanks to all who volunteered this season. Please note: We are not currently accepting volunteers on our farms. Our spring volunteer session runs April to June. We will begin scheduling volunteers in the early part of 2017.
