Volunteer F.A.Q. 

 

Q. What type of work can I expect to do this month? 

A. Lots of harvesting, weeding, field preparation/maintenance (pruning, deadhead flowers, etc.)

Q. What should I bring to the farm? 

A. Please wear shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. We recommend dressing in layers, bringing sunscreen, and bringing a reusable water bottle for staying hydrated.

 

Q. Does Crossroads accept drop-ins (outside of volunteer sessions)?

A. Yes! Feel free to drop-in Monday thru Friday, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. We can't guarantee accommodation outside those hours due to a small staff, but we'll try our best to honor your support. We recommend calling ahead if you want to drop-in in the afternoon.

 

Q. How old do you have to be to attend a volunteer session?

A. We accept volunteers ages 14 and older. For younger children, we host many education programs at the farm. Click here to check them out or email education@nassaulandtrust.org

 

Please email volunteer@nassaulandtrust.org or DM us on Instagram at @xroadsfarmliny if you can't make the sessions.

 

We are grateful for your interest and happy to work with you!
