the Sandown Volunteer Program
Community - Connection - Learning - Fresh Air - Local Food!
One of the most direct and meaningful ways to support the local food movement
also happens to be the most fun: come join us as a volunteer at the Sandown Centre!
Volunteers, or farm helpers, work alongside regenerative growers, soil scientists and sheep herders, helping to grow food, rehabilitate soils, or move the flock to their new paddock. Along the way, you'll gain a deep connection to the rhythm of the seasons and to the land, forge friendships, and build new muscles!
Beginners are welcome, and we will train. What we ask in return is that you commit to your time slot for at least two months. You will become a vital and important part of the team. This way, we can develop the working teams and rhythms that are such a rewarding part of farm life.
See below for volunteer opportunities,
and contact the growers directly to express your interest and arrange a time to meet.
Weather appropriate clothes are a must!
which includes gumboots, gloves, sun and raingear.
We look forward to having you join us on the land!
