Throughout the growing season we host regular workdays out at the Denver Green School Community Farm, and would love for you to come out and give us a hand. If you’re interested in helping us with non-farm related tasks, please scroll to the bottom of the page to read more about other ways you can contribute to Sprout City Farms. The best ways to stay up to date on the latest goings-on are to follow us (“like” us) on Facebook and to sign up for our monthly e-newsletter!
Farm Volunteer Opportunities
If you want to get your hands dirty, we have plenty of work to be done on the farm and we’d love to have your help. There is a regular farm workday every Thursday and Saturday from 10am-12pm (April 11th-October 31st)–feel free to drop in for whatever amount of time you have available!
If you have a group interested in volunteering, please contact our Farm Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 2 weeks in advance to schedule your opportunity. Groups from schools, summer camps, and offices are more than welcome to work together on the farm and do some valuable team-building in the process!
Before coming out to the farm:
1) If you are going to be volunteering more than one day throughout the season, download our Volunteer Packet; fill out the forms; and mail them to Denver Public Schools Volunteer Services. Found to the right => Once this is filled out and sent to DPS, no need to wait for confirmation to begin volunteering. You will be contacted if there are any follow-up questions.
2) Be sure to bring water, gloves, hat, sunscreen, sturdy shoes, smiles and friends!
3) Please be sure to also sign-up for our email list and let us know you’re interested in volunteering
Seasonal Internship Program *FULL FOR 2013*
We offer a volunteer internship program for those wanting to learn more in-depth about small-scale organic farming. Interns work 20 hours a week throughout the growing season (April – October) in exchange for a CSA share and invaluable hands-on knowledge of the operations and programs of a 1-acre urban community farm. If you’re interested in learning more, email our Farm Director Meg Caley at email@example.com.
Additional Volunteer Opportunities
Working on the farm is not the only way for you to get involved; there are a lot of other opportunities for volunteers. If you’d like to get involved and help us grow Sprout City Farms and assist us with some of these equally important, non-farm related tasks, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org). The following are some of the skill sets and experience we are most in need of:
- Legal counsel
- Nonprofit management
- Media and marketing
- Grant writing
