Volunteering with Little Farmers

This volunteer opportunity happens on weekdays, so it won't suit everyone's schedule. We only started the Little Farmers program last year, so it’s a work in progress. 

We hope to find volunteers with at least some experience with young children (even if it’s just being a parent, grandparent, etc.). If you have experience growing veggies that's great, but no worries if you don't. We will pair people up who do have that experience and will provide training. 

Last year we worked with three different daycares and this year we have funding to build raised beds at three more. All are in central Sudbury.

Volunteers will have opportunities to learn about installing rain barrels, building indoor worm composters and leading healthy eating activities (not exactly cooking, but simple food prep). 

How much time is required? It can be anywhere from a few hours to an hour or two every week - it really depends on you and other ideas for other garden activities with the kids through the season are welcome too!
