Volunteering at Riverview Gardens is an opportunity to engage in community stewardship, and help us address root causes of unemployment, all while having fun!  Getting involved is easy:

1. Download and complete our standard volunteer waiver and bring it to orientation.  All new volunteers must complete a waiver form:

2. Review our our Volunteer Policies Document: VOLUNTEER POLICIES

3. Attend an orientation. New volunteer orientations are held on the following dates/times:

Orientations are inside the Farm Workshop, 242 W. Seymour Street, Appleton, WI 54915.  

Directions to Farm Workshop​​, 242 W. Seymour Street, Appleton, WI 54915: Going South on Oneida Street from downtown Appleton, turn right on W. Seymour (St. Elizabeth’s Hospital is on your left), turn right into the 242 W. Seymour driveway, less than a 1/2 mile up the road.  While it is not marked, it is the driveway immediately past the yellow crosswalk sign on the right and Wilkie Street intersection on the left.  Please park on W. Seymour or Wilkie Streets, and park clear of crosswalk areas, driveways and other no-parking areas.

Volunteers should wear appropriate attire for outdoor work and closed-toed shoes/boots, and bring a refillable water bottle.  Orientations last approximately one half hour and are only required once.

4. After orientation, you can start volunteering right away.

Most volunteer opportunities are located on the urban farm; however, some other seasonal opportunities are available. Open volunteering on urban farm:

***May-October: Monday-Friday, 8a-5p, every Saturday, 9am-noon

Volunteer one time or on a regular basis!  Join us as much as or as little as you like!
