Here are some fun and helpful volunteer opportunities at Moraine Farm. If any of these volunteer positions is of interest, please contact me for more information at GAnderson@ttor.org.
Seedling Sale Volunteers
Saturday May 18 is our first ever seedling sale. We will be selling herb, flower and tomato seedlings to members of our CSA. Proceeds from the seedling sale will help fund our Food Access work. Help us label plants, set up for the sale and sell seedlings. We need volunteers on Friday afternoon on May 17 and Saturday afternoon on May 18.
Flowers for Food Access Volunteers
Harvest flowers and design bouquets to help raise funds for our Food Access Program. Flowers by the stem and bouquets are sold in our retail Farm Store. Proceeds from flower sales support our Food Access work with Beverly Bootstraps and the Cape Ann Food Pantry, making produce available to families with low incomes. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday morning flower pickers and bouquet arrangers needed.
Carpentry and Handyman (Handyperson?) Volunteers
A suggestion box, a hand washing table, a few more greenhouse benches, two or three more tables for our Farm Shop, and the endwalls of our new High Tunnel painted – just a few of the spring projects we’d love help with!
Help keep our shareholders up-to-date about locally-grown and produced food. Tell us about the best sources of local and sustainably produced eggs, cheese, milk, grain, meat, seafood, honey, maple syrup, beans, jam and more. Moraine Farm CSA is a community committed to supporting local producers: We want to know where our food comes from and we want as much of it to be locally and sustainably produced as possible. Work will include identifying locally and sustainably produced food and posting this information in our Farm Shop and on our blog. Opportunities may arise for the Local Forager to transport some local products to the Farm Store.
Transport freshly-harvested, organically-grown produce to Beverly and Salem public schools and Beverly Bootstraps in our truck or yours. Bring the farm to our food access partners and public school cooks – deliver veggies, share news about the farm, swap recipes or just say hello to the folks who help make Moraine Farm veggies available to a wide community of eaters. Wednesdays, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
