Volunteer Opportunities

volunteers

Abbo has volunteer opportunities at our Lafayette farm (Thomas Open Space - 1640 W. Baseline Rd) and also our home farm (10145 Oxford Rd) throughout our 2008 growing season. As a team we will create excellent food, share good times and learn a few things on the climb to Solstice, and then back down again throughout Harvest. If you have consistent time to offer, we appreciate and encourage participation.

We have a volunteer orientation scheduled for Thursday, May 29 at 6:30 p.m. at our Oxford Road farm. At the orientation, we will solidify your availability, give you a quick tour of our new home base and you will also need to sign a liability waiver. This year is a really big for us, one of those "all hands on deck" situations, as we strive to create a duplicable model in bringing back the small farm. Community-supported is the only way and volunteering is a great way to help. There are plenty of jobs for everyone; thank you for sharing with us!

Since 1945, crop losses due to insects have nearly doubled, but insecticide use has increased tenfold.
 

Quotes

"There seem to be but three ways for a nation to acquire wealth. The first is by war, as the Romans did, in plundering their neighbors. This is robbery. The second by commerce, which is generally cheating. The third is by agriculture, the only honest way, wherein man receives a real increase of the seed thrown into the ground, in a kind of continual miracle, wrought by the hand of God in his favor, as reward for his innocent life and his virtuous industry."
~Benjamin Franklin
