In order to make sure you have a great and safe volunteer experience, as well as to give you a better understanding of how our work supports food justice, we ask all volunteers to complete a Food Justice Orientation before volunteering with us. Orientation is held the First Saturday of the month from 10 am – 11 am. Participants are invited to stay and volunteer at the Farm Park from 11-1pm that day.
Click the link below to sign up for orientation and volunteer shifts. We add new opportunities periodically based on season and special projects, so check back regularly! Scroll down this page to learn more about potential volunteer opportunities or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

Garden Build volunteers help build gardens at partner sites across the Bay Area. Volunteers can assemble garden boxes, move soil, and plant seedlings. The garden builds take 4-5 hours, and CSF supplies all necessary tools. Multilingual volunteers are especially helpful.Learn more about the Backyard Gardens
