Our greatest volunteer needs are for the Meet the Truck Shift. All of the shifts are a wonderful opportunity to meet your neighbors and learn more about our CSA. We always need additional volunteers for other CSA events or for our special products. We will send volunteer calls as opportunities arise.
You can also fulfill your volunteer requirement by contributing your time in other ways: grant writing, archiving recipes / newsletters to the website, offering items and assistance for our fundraisers, like baked sales, raffles, etc. If you have other skills or ideas you’d like to share, please contact us. We’re open to all suggestions–this CSA is entirely volunteer organized and run!
