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!

Kitchen Garden Day, August 24, 2008
International Kitchen Garden Day is a global celebration of delicious locally produced foods. It is an opportunity for people around the world to gather in their gardens and fields with friends, family, and members of their local communities to enjoy the multiple pleasures and benefits of locally-grown, home-cooked, organic foods. Kitchen Garden Day is coordinated by Kitchen Gardeners International.
 

Quotes

"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."
~Henry David Thoreau
