Volunteer at Red Hook Farms

Drop-In Volunteering

The 2020 Red Hook Farms volunteer season start has been postponed. Typically, we would welcome drop-in volunteers weekly on Saturdays from April – November. This year, to ensure the safety of our staff and community, we have postponed the program’s start as New York City begins to reopen.

For now please complete this form to receive invitations when farm volunteering resumes! If you have any questions please email with the subject “Saturday Volunteering”.

Team Volunteer Days

We welcome groups for meaningful and productive volunteer days. We are able to host groups of 10-25 volunteers to tackle a variety of tasks – turning windrows, pulling weeds and harvesting all while getting dirty in our outdoor classroom! If your team has experience with construction, that’s a major plus. We generally request a donation to support staff time and materials. Please email us at to schedule a session on the Farms today.
