Volunteer Information
The farm welcomes all who wish to volunteer their time. In general, we prefer that you come for a 4-hour shift at the following days and times: Mondays and Thursdays from 8am-12pm or from 10am-2pm.

It is important that you show up at the beginning of the shift (to get orientated) and that you come prepared for farm labor and outdoor work (closed-toed shoes, hat, sunscreen, water bottle). Often, the farm will provide volunteers with extra produce harvested that day; however we cannot guarantee that every day we will have extra.

Work/Trade Positions at the Cal Poly Organic Farm
Each quarter, the farm hosts up to 25 work/trade volunteers. Contact us to see if there are positions available.
