Reap the benefits of dirt therapy!
Come out to the farm on Fridays from 9 am to noon, April through October, and get your hands dirty! Not only is it incredibly helpful to us, the farmers, but we truly believe gardening has incredible health benefits as well. Volunteering is open to the public; you do not need to be a Chickahominy Falls homeowner to join us! You can come one time or every week, it is up to you, but please sign up so we are properly prepared!
Please note: our volunteer program is separate from our Workshare program. Volunteering is non-committal - you can show up and leave as your schedule permits - but we also know that we have some insanely loyal volunteers and we'd like to thank them by rewarding our Premier Volunteers with a $10 gift certificate for completing four 3-hour volunteer shifts. After you sign in for your volunteer hours, we’ll keep track of your shifts and upon completion of your 4th shift, we’ll hand out certificates to be redeemed at our farm stands.
Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting dirty, a water bottle, gardening gloves (we have extras if you don't have any), sunscreen, and a sun hat. You're also welcome to bring a lunch to enjoy in the barn afterward.
We also welcome volunteer groups at other dates and times, so please reach out if you are interested in helping on the farm!
