Volunteer at Red Hook Farms

Individual Volunteering

The 2024 Red Hook Farms volunteer season is almost here! In the meantime, Sign up to volunteer this year!

We schedule all volunteer sessions in advance to ensure we can plan appropriate projects and bring our incredible volunteer community into our larger work plans and initiatives. If you have any questions please email with the subject “Individual Volunteering”.

See you in the Spring!

Team Volunteer Days

We welcome groups for meaningful and productive volunteer days. We are able to host groups of up to 20 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 and offer an opportunity to partner with our team to further the work being done on the farms.

The 2023 Red Hook Farms season has limited group sessions that will begin early spring. Please email with the subject “Group Volunteering” to reserve your spot this year!
