Crossroads Farm welcomes volunteers of all abilities. Volunteers work side by side with our farmer and staff to learn about organic growing methods, plant care, and local food. 

Activities include planting, harvesting, farm stand stocking, and gardening, as well as many other opportunities that arise during the growing season. Specialized help is needed for deliveries, event planning, fundraising, and outreach.

Volunteers are treated to special potluck dinners and our Volunteer Appreciation Afternoon.  If you’re interested in volunteering, please use our online sign up form or contact us at volunteer@nassaulandtrust.org.

Already a volunteer?  Please sign up for a 2014 volunteer orientation by clicking here.  All volunteers, including returning volunteers, are required to attend one orientation session this year.
