Building a healthier local food system is a tall order. It takes commitment, reflection, planning, partnerships, money… and a ton of volunteer work by people throughout our community.  We are grateful to have had the support and hands of thousands of volunteers from our inception, and are able to continue offering our programs and services because of our Volunteer Program.

Most of our regular volunteers support the production at Bounty Community Farm and gleaning with Bounty Hunters. We receive volunteers from many places including local schools, universities and colleges churches, businesses, and many interested community members. We also work with the Sonoma County Volunteer Center, who refers volunteers to us, many of whom need to complete court-appointed service hours.

There are lots of ways to contribute as a volunteer, depending on your interest, experience, skills and availability. To sign up to be a volunteer, either show up at the current Volunteer Hours, Volunteer Orientation, or fill out our Volunteer Interest Form.

Service Learning Opportunities

We welcome groups of students or community members who wish to engage in service learning opportunities at the farm. Typically, service learning groups are high school aged and above and are motivated to complete service hours. Service learning projects usually involve supporting farm production at Bounty Farm, and are available on a seasonal and project by project basis. If your group is over 5 participants, we ask that you contact [email protected] to coordinate schedule and tasks. If you have a group of 4 or less, you welcome to join our Volunteer Program by showing up at the farm on Volunteer Days (check our “Volunteer Program” page for most current days & times).

Corporate Service Days

Organize a community service day for your business or place of work! We organize hands-on service days at Bounty Farm for groups up to 30 people. Farm activities can include planting, weeding, organizing, harvesting, etc., or other larger project of need on the farm at the time. We charge a fee for organizing these days, please contact [email protected] if you are interested.
