Do you have a large group for a one-time project? Are you an individual who wants to spend quality time outdoors? Are you a family that wants to volunteer together? Are you interested in supporting sustainable local agriculture? There is a place for you at Urbandale!
How do I sign up to volunteer at Urbandale?
If you are a volunteer group, please send an email to with a note specifying the average age and number of people in your group, as well as a few potential dates and times that would be convenient for you all. Individuals, please email your time and date preferences.
What should I wear when I volunteer?
Farmers spend a lot of time working outside, no matter what the weather. Dress according to how you will feel most comfortable in whatever weather is predicted for your volunteer time. We recommend layers and closed toe shoes, sunscreen, a hat, and water.
What can I expect to do while I’m at the farm?
Farm work is seasonal. In the spring we’re busy prepping beds and planting outside. In the summer we’re weeding and watering and planting and harvesting. In the fall we’re busy putting beds to sleep for the winter and harvesting storage crops. In the winter we’re working to maintain our crops in the hoop house, seeding transplants, and getting ready for the spring.
