Volunteers

From our first days as an impassioned citizen group, volunteers have been the backbone of Grow Food Northampton. We continue to rely on volunteers to support our programs so we can provide local farm foods to community members experiencing food insecurity, grow food and enrich the earth on the Grow Food Northampton Community Farm, support local farmers by bringing them together with customers at our weekly farmers markets, and so much more!

Thank you for creating a just and resilient local food system with us!

Individuals

We rely on the efforts of a diverse group of individual volunteers to do what we do! If you are interested in volunteering as an individual, please complete the volunteer application below. Thank you for your interest!

Groups

Grow Food Northampton welcomes volunteer groups such as student organizations, church groups, and others for one-time or recurring volunteer opportunities.

Interns and Work-Study Students

We value the opportunity to include interns and work study students on the GFN team. Interns must be affiliated with a post-secondary institution of higher education.
