Our volunteer program is flexible to allow for varied interests and schedules. Some volunteers want to learn about gardening, some want to work at special events; we have friends who volunteer occasionally while others every Thursday or only during the holiday season.

Scheduled volunteer activities occur every Thursday & Friday from 10 am - 2 PM, and 10am to 4pm on Saturday & Sunday. Visit, meet the crew, learn more about the farm, and join in that day's activities. Make sure to wear sunscreen, layers of clothes, closed-toe shoes and bring a water bottle.
Natural Bridges is a working farm. Projects include all types of activities:
- Simple weeding
- Harvest: strawberries, CSA crops, lavender and other flowers for drying
- Planting new crops in early spring
- Flower harvest and making CSA bouquets
- Clearing out beds for new crops
- Helping out in our farm kitchen
Projects are weather dependent and defined by the day's priorities. We often can't tell you in advance exactly what project you'll be working on.

We are also looking for volunteers to prepare and serve lunch to our crew, trainees and volunteers on Wednesdays and Fridays, usually from about 10am until 1pm. We have some supplies and seek donations to supplement our own organic produce.

All of our events need volunteer help in planning, set-up, participation, and breakdown! We hold a variety of events ranging from farm-to-table dinners to gardening workshops. For more information view our upcoming events.
