Monthly Volunteer Project (MVP)

Join us on Braddock Farms for an early Saturday morning volunteering project. Help out with the farm tasks, take a tour with our staff and finish out your productive morning by shopping at the Braddock Farmstand.

Apply to become a Workshare Volunteer

Interested in farming for food? The workshare program is for anyone who wants to volunteer at our urban farm sites: Shiloh Farm or Braddock Farm. Workshares commit to 4 hours/week on one of the sites for the duration of the growing season which runs from May through October. In exchange for their hard work, workshares provided a weekly CSA share of fresh, farm-grown produce.

Apply to become a Pre-apprentice

 The pre-apprenticeship is a program in partnership with Pasa Sustainable Agriculture for those who have little or no growing experience but are interested in exploring a farming career.  This is a two-year program, where participants will volunteer four hours per week on our farm sites doing a variety of farm tasks and receive a share of vegetables as well as free admission to relevant workshops and conferences.
