Want to get your hands dirty fighting hunger?
The Community Harvest Project is now looking for volunteers who want to step up to the role of volunteer team leader.
Community Harvest, located on Wheeler Road in Grafton, is a non-profit farm which donates 100 percent of its produce to the Worcester County Food Bank and local soup kitchens. It’s often said the farm’s “second harvest” is its volunteers, who come from all over Massachusetts — and frequently beyond — to plant, care for and harvest the farm’s fields.
Volunteer team leaders partner with field staff to ensure a positive volunteer experience.
Team leading is a rewarding hands-on experience that involves guiding and working with a wide range of volunteers to complete various farm activities. This opportunity does not require any prior farming experience, and shifts are typically mornings Monday-Saturday.
Interested persons are invited to attend a team leader training night on Thursday, April 11 at the Community Barn at 37 Wheeler Rd in North Grafton. The event will run 6-7:30 p.m., followed by a tour. For more information, contact CHP’s Volunteer Coordinator Paul Grady at firstname.lastname@example.org.
