Come and Join Us!

EVERYONE is welcome
at Root Cause Farm

A critical part of being a community solution to hunger is community! Whether you are a lifelong gardener or have no idea which end of a carrot is up, we would love to have you join us. We are volunteer-driven, and we rely on the passion, energy, talent, and willingness of hundreds of volunteers like you to help provide fresh, nutrient-dense produce to those experiencing food insecurity.

The size of our garden is directly proportional to the size of our volunteer base, so the more volunteers, the more food grown!

Garden volunteers choose how little or how often they help out. Some come once a season, while others come once a week. From sowing seeds to harvesting, compost making to pulling weeds, garden volunteers do a little of everything under the guidance of our professional gardeners and their crew.

Visit our calendar to sign up for volunteer opportunities.

Our volunteers have the opportunity to:

    • Engage in local, direct community service
    • Enjoy meaningful work
    • Learn more about food and where food comes from
    • More deeply understand root causes of hunger and systems that perpetuate it
    • Meet others
    • Socialize with friends
    • Pick up gardening skills
    • Enjoy fresh air and exercise

All volunteers are required to annually read and sign the Root Cause Farm Volunteer Release Form and follow COVID-19 precautions.
