“Many hands make light work”
From lowering stress to boosting the “happiness effect,” volunteering offers many health benefits for you and makes a big impact in your community.
At Prescott Farm we try hard to pair the talents and interests of our volunteers with the right job, taking into consideration how much time volunteers can commit so that volunteering is a rewarding experience for everybody. We also offer a series of Service Learning Opportunities designed to train volunteers and give you hands-on experience right here at Prescott Farm.
Come alone or come with a group, once or on a regular basis. There’s so much to do and we always appreciate help. Get involved today!
There are several ways to be part of the team:
Garden Volunteers: We are always looking to expand our dedicated group of garden volunteers who come during the Spring and Summer months to work on our Heritage Gardens. If you have a green thumb and don’t mind getting a little dirty, then this volunteer opportunity is for you! Not sure if you have a green thumb yet? Check out our Service Learning Opportunities for a chance to expand your knowledge!
Trail Maintenance: If you love hard work and are handy with a pair of clippers, our trails need you! The trails get a lot of use throughout the year and we do our best to keep them well-maintained and free of any branches and debris. Year-round and seasonal opportunities.
Administrative: Throughout the year we have various projects that require light administrative work. If folding letters and stuffing envelopes is your dream volunteer job, let us know!
Committees: If you have unique knowledge and skills that you could contribute to one of our committees, we want to talk to you! We’re currently seeking volunteers to serve on our Property, Risk and Development Committees. Contact us to find out more!
Prescott Farm is always looking for ways to engage our community. If you have an idea of ways that you, your employer or another group can help out at the Farm, please let us know. Volunteering is a great way to get outdoors and get active.
“We’ve enjoyed helping during both Harvest and Winter public events almost as much as reveling in the excitement as our grandchildren share what they’ve learned and enjoyed most at the end of each day at ‘camp’ during the drive home.”
