Group Volunteering


Come get your hands dirty at the Urban Farm! Volunteer groups are an essential part of CCUA, participating in all aspects of planting, growing, harvesting and general upkeep and maintenance of the Urban Farm.  All group workdays must be scheduled at least 3 weeks in advance to ensure that we can accommodate your group. To schedule, please complete a Group Volunteering application. We can schedule group volunteering for Wednesdays 9am-12pm and 2pm-5pm, Fridays 2pm-5pm, and Saturdays 10am-12pm

If you have any questions or concerns about scheduling your group for a volunteer work day, please contact CCUA’s Urban Farm Manager Tony Minnick at or by phone at (573) 514-4174. We look forward to working with you!
