Call for Volunteers

We are putting out a call for volunteers to help out on the farm. We have produce to harvest for 19 CSA members and for two markets. We also have irrigation lines to layout, mulching, planting and watering to do and it is expected to remain hot the rest of the week. Below is a provisional farm work itinerary so you can check your work, home and life schedule to see where you can plug-in at the farm. We welcome you to stop by to volunteer for any amount of time. Please contact us so we know when to expect you. Also feel free to spread the word amongst your friends and social circles. We appreciate your support and look forward to working with you when you stop by.

The farm is located at :
Berea Mennonite Church
1088 Bouldercrest Drive, S.E.,
Atlanta, GA 30316
404-244-0289

Thank you
Cecilia (your farmer)

  1. Glad to see some information from the farm Cecilia! I’m sure the thought has crossed your mind, but I think it would be extremely helpful if a facebook page was started up and utilized as a information distribution platform. Also, have you heard about the Crop Mob? If there was a real need for some serious help, this could be a way to get a lot done quickly! http://www.cropmobatl.com/

    Thanks and see you this afternoon at the EAV market!

    • Thanks Tyler! We are trying really hard to keep our facebook, blog and local harvest sites updated. But we are currently a staff of two with some great volunteers. We have reached out to Crop Mob and they have been awesome, directing volunteers our way. Thanks for looking out for us and if you know of any other resources please send them our way.

      We hope you enjoy your share this week!
