Volunteering for Individuals and Families


Looking for an on-going and meaningful way to connect to your community? We are always in need of humble hands to help make our farm look its best.  The Urban Farm at Stapleton offers unique opportunities for individuals and families to add a little country to your city life. We welcome adults and youth. Volunteering minors, under 18 yo, need to be supervised by an accompanied adult and may not be left on premises alone. Children accompanying a volunteering adult must stay with adult at all times. Typically children under the age of 5 are easily distracted by the animals and may not do well working for a longer period of time. please take this into consideration. We ask that you commit to a 2 hour slot on your first day as we will give you a quick tour of the farm and explain what work needs to be done. Your subsequent volunteering days can evolve from there.
