Description

Join us for a volunteer day at Hendrick Farm! This is your chance to find yourself in a beautiful setting, get a little (or a lot of) dirt under those fingernails, and receive a FREE introduction to organic market farming. You will spend three hours with Hendrick Foundation President Fred Brisco and the other volunteers engaging in everyday farm work - weeding, harvesting, and more - before joining him for lunch and a 30-minute workshop on Small Farm Infrastructure - the mechanics of building a farm from the ground up!

WHAT TO BRING

  • You’re going to get dirty, so don’t wear anything you would be scared to stain!

  • Boots or work boots are an asset

  • Gardening gloves

  • A hat and sunscreen (that sun can get hot!)

  • Water bottle

PROVIDED

  • Tools

  • Workshop & necessary tools

  • BBQ Lunch*

*IF YOU HAVE ANY ALLERGIES OR DIETARY RESTRICTIONS PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO volunteer@hendrickfarm.ca after you have registered.


BIO - FRED BRISCO

A jack-of-all trades with a serious green thumb, Hendrick Foundation President, Fred Brisco, spends his days ensuring the foundation runs smoothly. You can find him doing anything and everything, from poring over foundation finances, to helping build a new fence around the organic farm, always with a smile on his face.

NOTE: In order to ensure an authentic experience for everyone, we ask that children under the age of 10 not participate in this particular volunteer day and that any children below the age of 16 be accompanied by an adult (both must register).
