Working together to preserve a way of life

 If you are looking for an opportunity to learn more about what we do here and gain valuable experience then we invite you to join us during our season with the caretaking of the orchard.

Some Volunteer opportunities include:

General upkeep:  weed control, fertilizing, mulching

Select Restoration Projects:  Creating and planting beds, landscaping, habitat renewal

Events:  Help with set-up and take down,  involvement with the activities held, sharing your talents or experience thru demonstration or a class.  

Some of the work is very challenging and unique to orcharding so prepared to get dirty and sore when some of those forgotten muscles get used!  

Although, we love having kids here, we ask that you only bring children willing and able to help with the work.  Sorry, there is no daycare available.   We are happy to arrange a private tour which is great for kids to experience and keeps it fun.  We hope you will bring them to one of our events happening during the season!
