Small Engine Repair

Volunteer sought to work on a variety of 2- and 4-stroke engines, including trimmers, lawnmowers, tillers, snow throwers, chippers, power tools, utility vehicles, and tractors. Volunteers should have proven experience repairing and maintaining small engines, changing belts, cleaning carburetors and other related work. Diesel experience a plus. Schedule is flexible Monday-Saturday based on volunteer availability.

Farm Hosts

Farm Hosts sought to engage in a variety of activities including on our urban farm, including:

Basic farm interest or knowledge a plus, but we are willing to train interested volunteers. A consistent weekly schedule is desired during weekday mornings (once a week) or on Monday afternoons.

Attend an orientation or, if you already have, contact Kristie Mastey at [email protected].

Join us to plant the seeds of change! It’s easy to get involved:

1. COMPLETE VOLUNTEER WAIVER and bring it to orientation.

2. ATTEND AN ORIENTATION. New volunteer orientations are held on the following dates/times:

Orientations are @ Farm Workshop, 242 W. Seymour Street, Appleton, WI 54915. Directions to Farm Workshop​​: 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. Please park on W. Seymour or Wilkie Streets, and park clear of no-parking areas.


Most volunteer opportunities are located on the urban farm; however, some other seasonal opportunities are available. Volunteers should wear appropriate attire for outdoor work and closed-toed shoes/boots, and bring a refillable water bottle. You don’t need to know how to “farm” – there are so many great opportunities and we train all volunteers!

Off-Season/Winter Hours (November-April) are:

**Monday-Friday, 8a-4p

**2nd and 3rd Saturdays of month, 9am-noon
