Join the crew at Woodside Farms!
Have you wondered what it really takes to get food on your plate?
Find out by working in our gardens this growing season in exchange for farm stand credit ($$), knowledge about chemical-free and sustainable growing practices, dirt therapy, and a growing community. This program is perfect for anyone who is curious about small-farm life, working out outside, getting a little dirty, and eating delicious sun-ripe food. Sound like anyone you know? We even have programs designed for individuals who are interested in eventually working towards paid shifts on the farm.
Commit to working 4 hours a shift on a schedule that fits yours and you will be a part of a working, eco-friendly farm.
We have morning shifts, for those early risers, that start at 8 am and end at noon. We also have afternoon shifts that start at 1 pm and go until 5 pm. This year we'll be offering shifts Tuesday - Friday for the duration of our first block (April 4th - May 12th) and Monday-Friday for blocks 2-5 (May 15th - October 27th) to provide for more growing opportunities.
So, how does this work? Work Share members earn credits for our Farm Stand. That means your
work will go towards the freshest and most local veggies, proteins, eggs, and other local goodies. This year is a little different from other years - this year we're offering even more flexible shifts as well as the ability to customize your work share experience to your interest and capabilities. We want to make Woodside Farms a space for everyone!

STANDARD WORK SHARE PROGRAM:
This is our Classic 6-week block option for those who can commit to the same day of the week for 6 weeks at a time. Due to the commitment level of this option, the store credit reimbursement is $25/week. Bonus! If you sign up for all five 6-week blocks you will get an additional $50 extra store credit (issued at the beginning of your 5th block)
CHILDREN AND WORK SHARES
We are often asked if Workshare members can bring or send their children. We have tried this at various times through the years, but have come to the conclusion that for reasons of safety, security, and liability, we need to limit this program to individuals 16 and up.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
To sign up all you have to do is fill out our 2023 Work Share contract, read, and sign it.
Please read over this document carefully as items may have changed from years past and we would like to offer complete transparency.
Orientation is required for all new work-share participants. This is completed simply by emailing our Work Share Manager Blair at email@example.com and scheduling to attend a 3-hour working orientation to be held on the day of the week that you're signing up for before your first work-share shift. So, if you're signing up for a Tuesday shift, make sure to schedule a Tuesday working orientation time. You only need to attend one orientation if you’re new to the program, regardless of how many blocks or shifts you sign up for. Plan on being dressed for all types of weather and make sure to bring water and a snack if you’d like one.
