Good Food Project Volunteering
– Everdale & The SEED
Volunteer on the farm and work side by side with Everdale’s Farmers to grow food that goes directly towards reducing food insecurity. Volunteer shifts happen every Wednesday morning at Everdale and folks have the option of getting to the farm themselves, or catching a ride with other volunteers from the Guelph Community Health Centre.
All volunteers should be either 14 years of age or entering Grade 9.
This volunteer program is part of a partnership between The SEED from the Guelph Community Health Centre and Everdale.
A working share is someone who can commit to regular weekly shifts at one of our markets and receives produce in exchange. There are a number of options for those interested.
Everdale hosts an annual fall event every season that can see up to 1000 visitors come to the farm. We rely on volunteers to help run the event. There is a wide range of tasks that volunteers may be asked to perform, from running kids activities, helping with u-pick carrots, directing traffic, site setup and cleanup, and many more.
Week Long Volunteering
For people who can’t commit to regular weekly shifts, but can commit to spending a full week on the farm. Everdale highly encourages potential Sustainable Farming Certificate students to participate in this option in the season prior to applying if possible.
