The Brookwood Community Farm depends on the support of individuals like you who are dedicated to cultivating healthy foods and healthy communities. There are many ways to support the work we do and we welcome your participation.
Come get your hands dirty at the farm. Volunteers are an essential part of the Brookwood Community, participating in all aspects of planting, growing and harvesting our crops. Volunteer work hours are held on Saturday mornings during the spring, summer, and fall. For those of you who aren’t interested in farm work, there are plenty of other ways to help out, including newsletter production, outreach, website design/maintenance, event planning, etc.
Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering.
