Three hours of your time in exchange for fresh veggies!
Caoba Farms accepts volunteers daily. We ask for three hours of work, and in exchange for that, we provide you with a bag of fresh, organic vegetables grown on the farm.
We expect you at 9am, and daily opportunities in the garden include weeding, harvesting seeds, turning compost, planting seedlings (Wednesdays), filling bags with soil, and cleaning animals yards. We also have a special projects to-do list--things like painting, cleaning, organizing--each week for volunteers.
If you are interested to volunteer for a longer period of time, please get in touch with us so that we can plan it out. See the detailed schedule below for the daily volunteer tasks.
