Farm Volunteer Day at Henry Got Crops Organizer: Weavers Way Farms

June 25, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for a morning of field work on the farm! Get your hands in the dirt & help with
planting, weeding, mulching, harvesting, and/or more

You will be working with Akiva (he/him), the Farm Manager at Henry Got Crops, as well as potentially other Weavers Way farmers, co-op members completing working member shifts, and other volunteers. Field work generally involves kneeling, squatting, or bending over for extended periods of time and being exposed to the elements and the outdoors, i.e. sun, rain, bugs, mud, etc. We encourage taking breaks, drinking lots of water, and doing only what feels right for your body! There is drinking water available and a bathroom a short walk from the fields. We are out there rain or shine, but not in unsafe conditions – you’ll receive an email if we cancel the volunteer day due to anticipated inclement weather. NOTE: IF YOU ARE A WEAVERS WAY MEMBER, PLEASE SIGN UP THROUGH THE WW MEMBER CENTER instead, to ensure you receive credit for your work hours.

How to get there: On google maps, search “Henry Got Crops CSA and Weavers Way Farm Market at Saul High School.” The address is 7095 Henry Ave. Park in the lot and be mindful not
to block any barn entrances please! If you don’t see anyone, walk down the hill into the field.

What to bring: Water, sun protection, clothes and closed toed-shoes for working outside and getting dirty, garden/work gloves if you have them.

Accessibility: Our parking lot is a gravel parking lot, and paths are unpaved. Our fields are on a slope with sometimes uneven paths. There is a wheelchair-accessible bathroom. Our farm market building has a ramp to the back entrance and 3 steps up to the front entrance. We often have options for indoor, non-strenuous work, as well as shade tents and folding tables that can be set up for more accessible work. Please let us know if you need accessible work options so we can have projects set up, e-mail awoods@weaversway.coop
