Volunteers & Community Service
We Cannot Do This Without YOU! If You Ate Today, Thank a Farmer!
Volunteers play a vital role in the success of our mission. The time is right to celebrate the farmer and fund youth educational programs in agriculture to foster the entrepreneurial spirit on family farms to rebuild robust economies and secure local food sheds as a national security issue.
Volunteer, sow, grow, and harvest seeds on a working farm and greenhouses. Lend your handy skills, join farm tours, sign up to help at our teaching kitchen, workshops and event tickets available to volunteers.
Connect FarmOn! to your world of giving – Foundations, Corporations, Collaborations and Sponorships for Cash and In-kind giving. We welcome your ideas and support of all kinds!
If you have time – Work on the farm! If you have a certain skill, spend time in the office. Volunteer at FarmOn! events. Bring your Corporate Retreat to Empire Farm or a group of friends of the family to garden in the community FarmOn! Victory Garden and connect to the farm to table excitement to assist apprentices in an edible education as part of our FarmOn! Accelerator scholarship program.
Individuals, students, WOOFers, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Veterans, community groups, local business and corporate community service projects are welcome to Empire Farm! Thank you for your interest in supporting the FarmOn! Foundation with your valuable time!
