Volunteer Fall 2022!- Various Saturdays
Volunteer for Discounts! Full Participation required. Various Dates
- Sharingwood Farmstead
**New discount plan beginning Fall 2022: We recognize that programming for children adds up-- especially with multiple children! We don't want anyone to feel they can not afford to participate in classes, so we have come up with a solution that we think is a real win-win! If you would like to receive a discount on any class/ activity/ camp/ or market purchase, please come to one of our Volunteer Saturdays! For every person* that works for a 2 hr block, we will give a $50 credit towards a class/ activity/ camp/ or purchase of your choice. That means that you can attend classes for much less than you would without volunteering and we get some much needed help around the farm! Win-win! For ex.-- if a set of two adults came to volunteer 9-1pm, that would be a $200 credit towards classes of their choice ($50 each adult for each 2 hour block-in this case, 9-11, and 11-1pm). If they came the next volunteer day to do the same, that would be an additional $200 credit. Credits will be applied after the volunteering has been done. This can be a refund for a class currently enrolled in, or a credit for future classes. Be sure to sign up for the "Volunteer Fall 2022" dates that you would like to attend! *usually ~10 years+-- really based on focus/ ability to put forth reasonable sustained effort. Volunteer labor can be light to strenuous depending on the person and may include: Cleaning and maintenance of farm equipment/ facilities Hauling with wheelbarrows and wagons Weeding and planting Building structures Operating machinery/ lawn equipment/ power equipment Repairing fencing Interacting with animals to relocate or do wellness checks Taking pictures Inspecting for potential safety hazards Digging trenches Because the volunteer work to be done is attention-consuming and we want to keep everyone safe, this is a time when it would be best to leave young children at home. Volunteer Days are in blocks of 2 hours on the following dates: Saturday, August 13-- 9am to 11am; 11am to 1pm; 1pm to 3pm Saturday, September 3 (Labor Day Weekend)-- 9am to 11am; 11am to 1pm; 1pm to 3pm Saturday, October 22-- 9am to 11am; 11am to 1pm; 1pm to 3pm Saturday, November 12-- 9am to 11am; 11am to 1pm; 1pm to 3pm Be sure to come prepared with work clothes, shoes, hats, gloves (though we have some extra if you don't have any), and a water bottle for each person participating! If you have any questions, or need to volunteer on other dates/ times, please contact us!
