Need Flowers for Your Event?

This year the farm featured 29 varieties of cut flowers - dahlias and sunflowers, celosia and asters, snapdragons and amaranth - many in shades of Cardinal red. We provided sustainably grown seasonal blooms for campus events. In addition to gracing many a campus table, these flowers provide habitat for beneficial insects that help control crop pests, and nectar for our resident bee hives.

Volunteer Hours

Heavy rain cancels

Join us for our open volunteer hours!

If you an individual or group of 5 or less join us during some of our drop in volunteer hours:

  • Tuesdays    8:30am - 11:00am
  • Thursdays   8:30am - 11:00am
  • Saturdays   9:30am - 4:00pm

Should you have a group of 5 or more interested in volunteering we ask you to contact our program's coordinator at least two weeks prior to the date on which you would like to volunteer. We can not accommodate groups of 5 or more during our regular drop in sessions and require groups to schedule a separate time during the week. 

Volunteers help keep the farm running. Tuesday and Thursday mornings we harvest fresh produce for campus dining halls. Farm tasks on other days may include keeping our fields free of weeds and rocks, planting new crop rotations, deadheading flowers, teaming up on irrigation, composting, mulching, and having a great time getting dirty. We ask that volunteers come prepared with close-toed shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty! We have gloves and tools for all. 

ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST COMPLETE A WAIVER.

Please check back for future workshops.
