Are you interested in helping create a strong, vibrant, local food system?
Consider volunteering with New Entry! We welcome new volunteers who bring energy, creativity, knowledge, and fun to our work. We strive to build relationships with our volunteers so that we may learn from one another. Our dedicated volunteers are vital to the success of our programs and our work transforming the food system, in New England and beyond.
Here are some ways you can get involved:
Become a Share Packer- generally Monday and Wednesday afternoons May-October
Become a Farm Volunteer- help with planting, weeding, harvesting, and other miscellaneous field tasks! Flexible timing- Monday through Thursday, May-October. No experience necessary
Become a License Plate Advocate- year-round, can easily accomodate varying schedules
Join one of our incubator farmers as a Farm Volunteer- assist farmers with planting, caring for, and harvesting fields with the potential to help with post-harvest handling as well. Schedule will depend on farmers' needs, generally April-November
Join us or bring your group for an on-the-farm project- we welcome school and professional groups March-November
Other ideas- what do you bring to the table? How would you like to get involved? Let us know!
