Regular volunteering programme

Our regular volunteering programme happens all year round. Field volunteers are invited to help with general farm work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We also run regular wildlife volunteering sessions on Thursdays.

Field volunteering

Our field volunteers help out with a huge variety of tasks which change through the seasons and encompass all aspects of tending our crops. From preparing the ground, to planting, weeding, maintaining and harvesting (plus a bit of very important taste-testing too!). Don't worry - you don't need to have any experience, you will learn alongside us when you get involved.

Wildlife & gardening volunteering

Farming is about so much more than feeding people, caring for our wildlife and our environmental impact is really important to our work. We have opportunities for volunteers to help us become a more nature-friendly farm, including maintaining and improving our flower beds, wildflower areas, field margins and hedgerows, as well as creating habitats and monitoring the wildlife on site.

Your role as a volunteer is an hugely important part of our overall ethos and the work we do. We greatly value your input, both physical and in the form of any ideas or feedback you may have. The Farm operates a volunteering programme that is open to all, promoting community involvement and skills development within a sociable and supportive environment. If you have specific support needs, please speak to the Engagement Lead or Community Farmer, who will endeavour to provide you with what you need. Please refer to our equal opportunities policy for more information on this.
