Harvest Hands

The Harvest Hands Volunteer Program offers participants an opportunity to deepen their involvement with the mission of Jones Valley Teaching Farm while gaining experience on a small-scale diversified farm. 

Our farmers will train volunteers on food safety practices and harvest techniques. Through your participation in the harvest and distribution of fresh healthy produce, you will be directly involved in our efforts to build food-resilient, healthy, and connected communities.
