Volunteering + Membership
Thank you for your interest in gardening with us this season. Here are just a few of the wonderful things you will be signing up for if you decide to be a part of The Ballfield Farm community:
Gardening collectively is a lot of fun but it also requires a lot of work and resources. We are blessed to be a part of such a large and growing community to help share this burden. There is a suggested $15 membership fee for individuals or $30 for families to help cover the costs of seeds, soil, soil amendments, and tools. Give more if you feel so inclined, give less if you can’t afford it, but please don’t let money stop you from joining the revolution. All members should work at least 6 hours a month for individuals, or 12 hours a month per family, so that the space thrives. If you know that you are going out of town or life gets too busy, please don't let that become a barrier to keeping you away; simply pick up where you left off when you are able to return! Hours are not cumulative and you do not necessarily need to “make up” missed hours before returning and harvesting. For the past several years we have grown a large amount of food, so whenever you come and work the bounty is yours to reap.
Ready to Work?
Download and fill out the following forms, and bring them with you next time you come to Ballfield Farm! The Membership form is meant to be filled out when you commit to supporting your fellow farmers throughout the growing season. The release form must be filled before volunteering. Forms will also be available at the Farm.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
