Come Grow with us!

Volunteers are an essential part of the operation of Sustainable Berea and the Berea Urban Farm.

By volunteering, you contribute to the well-being of your community, gain knowledge and skills, and have fun!

Volunteers on the farm can expect a variety of tasks from weeding, planting, mulching, pruning, harvesting and more.

In order for you to prepare properly, please review our volunteer guidelines listed below. We also ask that you complete a waiver form the first time you volunteer and yearly after that.

Thank you!  We hope to see you on the farm!
