Volunteer opportunities throughout the year

South St. Farm

Each growing season (May-October) is a joy at Somerville's only urban farm! Join us in growing food, engaging youth at the farm, cultivating our pollinator garden, and delivering produce to our food justice access partners.

During the summer and fall we typically have open volunteer hours on the farm one evening per week, and some organizations or companies can bring a whole group for a group experience.


School Garden Maintenance

We are excited to start planting in Healey's new garden space and continue to tend the 7 other school gardens! We need your help to water, weed, and tend these garden spaces starting in April.

We are esepcially looking for college-age volunteers who can help support

Facilitate a Community Workshop

We are always wanting to  community-wide workshops focused on the themes of food & farming, environment, and climate, and sustainability. We are looking for guest-presenters interested in facilitating a 30min-1hr workshop in an area of your expertise! This could involve a pickling demonstration, lecture on red lining & climate change, medicinal herbs, mushroom farming, etc. These workshops are sliding-scale with a possible stipend for guest presenters.


Fill out the volunteer form and indicate you have an area of expertise to share!

Community Engagement, Climate Justice, and more!

With climate change, gentrification, and other challenges impacting our community, it will take all hands on deck to build collective power in our neighborhoods. As we build the Climate Safe Neighborhoods program, we will need to engage widely and deeply in our communities. Some of this work will require boots on the ground efforts to reach those who have been systemically excluded from decision-making and power. These efforts may include: neighborhood canvassing, surveys, focus groups, listening sessions, attending community meetings and events, and tabling at events, flyering neighborhoods, and more.
