Food Share partners with the Area Agency on Aging Program Gardeners, Mark, Mauri & Christopher, to help find volunteers to assist them with their organic polyculture farm. Every Monday & Thursday, fresh produce is harvested from the farm and sent to the Agency on Aging to be boxed up and delivered to hundreds of seniors and disabled people across Ventura County who would otherwise not have access to nutritious food. As a volunteer you’ll take part in every aspect of the farming process, from preparing rows to planting food to tending it and ultimately to harvesting over 25 different species of fruit and vegetable. Tasks vary in difficulty, so there’s something for everyone regardless of age or ability. Come join the community of volunteers helping feed our county. 

 

Requirements:

Able to do physical labor in changing outdoor weather conditions

Minimum age is 12

Sign a County waiver provided on site or download here and bring with you https://www.cervistech.com/acts/file/systemfileopen.php?org_id=0303&file_id=3&t=4ae86821c673d69e65d65c73f52c33b0

 

Appropriate suggested attire:

No masks because you are outside!

Two things are guaranteed during your visit: your clothes will get dirty, and the temperature will change. Layer casual clothing such as shorts and long pants, long sleeves and a sweatshirt.  Wear a hat and bring sunscreen.  Try to bring a refillable water bottle (if not we have plastic bottled water available).  Please keep hydrated.  Even though you think you are not thirsty, you are! Bring garden gloves or we have ones you can borrow.
