Volunteering At ReVision Urban Farm

When you volunteer at ReVision Urban Farm, not only will you get your hands dirty, but you’ll also be part of the movement to grow fresh, healthy food in the city. Here is how to volunteer with us:

  • We welcome individual volunteers, ages 12 and up.
  • Typically, volunteers join us for three-hour shifts, T – F, either 9am-12pm or 1pm - 4 pm.
  • Please contact the farm to schedule a time to volunteer with us. Call us at 617-236-1012 x227.
  • There are sometimes opportunities to volunteer with us on a Saturday or Sunday.
  • We need the most help from mid-March through mid-November.

The Volunteer Experience

Volunteer tasks on our farm vary with the season. In the early spring, we work in the greenhouse, spread compost, and prepare our fields for growing. In the late spring, we transplant seedlings into our fields and continue working in the greenhouse. During summer and fall, we harvest our produce and prepare growing beds for succession crops. Throughout the growing season we rely on volunteers to keep back the weeds and maintain trash-free gardens. We also often need assistance with produce distribution for shelter residents, our neighborhood farm stand, and our Community Supported Agriculture program. Finally, the late fall is a time for cleaning up the fields, spreading compost, planting cover crop, and other tasks to get ready for the winter freeze.

Individual volunteers are encouraged to speak with us about additional, longer-term opportunities if desired.
