Get Your Hands Dirty

You don't have to be a master gardener or professional farmer to make a difference at the Grow: Johnson County farm. Our team always welcomes helping hands to assist with various tasks around the farm site--whether planting, weeding, harvesting, washing veggies, or even assisting with an educational demonstration. 

Check out our calendar page to see find out what you can do to help out.

In the interest of food safety and the well-being of everyone involved, we only ask that volunteers refrain from coming to the farm when they are feeling ill. Trust us: there will be plenty of work to be done when you are well again.  Before coming to the farm, we ask that all volunteers review the attached Volunteer Expectations form
