Come get your hands dirty at the Urban Farm or Agriculture Park! 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. Volunteers at the Agriculture Park will help develop this new site. All group workdays must be scheduled at least 3 weeks in advance to ensure that we can accommodate your group. To volunteer as a group the minimum age is 12 years old and volunteers from the age of 12-15 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone or supervisor. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (573) 514-4174. We look forward to working with you!
This is a working farm and therefore there will be dirt! Please dress according to the weather, in layers, wear boots, closed toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Also bring sunscreen, hat, water and gloves if needed. Our bathroom facilities are porta-potty only!
