VOLUNTEERS

All 2022 Volunteers please  complete and submit your 2022 Volunteer Agreement.   Even if you are a returning Volunteer, we ask that you submit a new agreement each year.  Thanks!

All of the Koiner Farm Volunteership Positions for the 2022 season are currently full. 

That said, we are always looking for great people to join our team - see below for more opportunities!

Koiner Farm Volunteers follow in Charlie Koiner's footsteps.  Charlie ran Koiner Farm for nearly 40 years.  Since his passing in January 2019, volunteers from the community have been working to ensure that Koiner Farm does not miss a beat (or a beet) without Charlie at the helm.  Our wonderful, dedicated, knowledgeable group of volunteers keep Koiner Farm running smoothly and ensure that it remains a true community treasure!  

  • Koiner Farm Volunteerships run mid-March through mid-November.

  • Volunteers dedicate a minimum of 2 hours per week to working on the farm. 

  • We offer 4 volunteer shifts (2 in the morning and 2 in the evening):

    • The morning crews meet Mondays and Thursday, 9-11AM.  The primary job of the morning  crews is harvesting, with the occasional need to water and weed.  These are great crews for retirees to join!

    • The evening crews meet Thursdays and Sundays, 5-7PM.  The primary job of the evening crews is general farm upkeep, which includes everything from construction and repair, to weeding and edging, to spreading compost and mulch, to watering, seed saving, composting, and even working the register on farmstand nights. These are great crews for working adults to join!

    • Times may adjust slightly in order to avoid the heat or accomodate daylight savings.

    • Volunteers may work more than one shift.
