Volunteers are the core of our organization! Without you, we couldn’t so effectively serve the community and our program participants! Our greatest need is on the Urban Farm, and while we are entering our slow time of the year, there are always opportunities to engage. Have no fear- you don’t need farming experience to make and impact! We will teach you everything you need to know.

We ask all volunteers to dress appropriately for farm work, wear close-toed shoes and bring a refillable water bottle. We provide any tools you might need, including gloves.

Fall/Winter Farm Hours:
Monday-Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Saturdays: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The Urban Farm is open the 2nd and 3rd Saturdays of every month.

We will be closed November 19-26 and December 20-January 2 for the holidays.


Volunteer Opportunities










During our busy season (March-October), we are in need of volunteers to weed, plant, harvest, wash and pack produce.

We invite your organization, club, team or office to embrace and grow from the lessons of social innovation.  Volunteering is a positive activity for all types of groups and our opportunities can be customized upon request. Please contact Chelsie Towns at 920-378-8527 or [email protected]

    1. Once you have attended an orientation, you can register to volunteer at any time!

Orientations are held in our Farm Workshop. Find the Urban Farm at 242 W. Seymour Street, Appleton, WI 54915. Please allow extra time for travel as road closures and detour routes can change unexpectedly. When you arrive, you can park on W. Seymour or Willkie Street near the farm entrance.
