Volunteer

At the Yorkville site volunteering is not mandatory but it is appreciated.  All the folks at the site are member/volunteers without whom the group would not exist.  Many members find volunteering to be the piece that really makes the CSA come together.  It’s a great way to meet people in the neighborhood.  We have a core group of regular volunteers to open and close the site so don’t worry about being left alone to do something you’ve never done before.

Other volunteering opportunities are available which can be done from home.  This can be anything from making phone calls to entering recipes on the website to helping arrange rideshares up to the farm.  Watch for postings and emails requesting volunteer work.
