Opportunities through Growing Places Indy and our GPI Winter Farmers Market:
Urban Farm Volunteers: Throughout the season, we are in need of individuals interested in helping us with our day-to-day or week-to-week work in order to learn more about how to grow food. There is no previous farm or garden knowledge required to volunteer with us.
Group Volunteers: In addition, we are able to host groups on the farm (maximum 20 participants) and will organize projects to accommodate groups of various sizes. Click here to sign up!
If you don’t see a time in our calendar that will work for your group, please let us know when you’d like to come to the farm by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Indy Winter Farmers Market: The IWFM needs volunteers every Saturday during market season (November through April) and offers three volunteer shifts every Saturday. Click here to sign up!
Shift 1: 7:30am-9am to help with market set up and vendor load-in
Shift 2: 9am-12:30pm to help with greeting shoppers, info table, activities in the “lil’ sprouts” area, supporting vendors, general cleanup, etc. (let us know if you’re an interested and talented face-painter, storyteller, or kids crafter).
