Volunteer Opportunities

Hello Farm Folk,

Within The Cutting Veg community, our volunteer program is very important to us. All of our volunteers benefit in a variety of ways, including learning farm and/or market skills, being part of community of like-minded people, veggies to take home each shift, exercise and time outdoors, etc. We have two types of volunteers: Casual and Core.

Casual volunteers do not need to make any commitment, and are welcome to help out on the farm most Sundays to Fridays, between 6:30am and 3pm. Casual volunteers need simply to rsvp to our e-newsletter Farm Talk, when you want to come to the farm. We will start welcoming casual volunteers to the farm at some point in the next few weeks. If you are interested in being a casual volunteer, email daniel@thecuttingveg.com, and say "Add me to your e-newsletter." Then, simply keep your eyes open for the "Volunteer Needs" section within Farm Talk.

In contrast, Core Volunteers commit to a certain shift at the farm or a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture Program), over a two month minimum period. We are currently accepting applications for the following "Core Volunteer" positions for the 2011 season:

FARM: Sunday`s, 6:30am-3:30pm
FARM: Monday`s, 6:30am-3:30pm
FARM: Tuesday`s, 6:30am-3:30pm
FARM: Wednesday`s, 6:30am-3:30pm

CSA: Thursday`s, 2-7:30pm, Bathurst and Rutherford rd area
FARM: Thursday`s, 6:30am-3:30pm

To apply:
  • Email Jessica Gibson, at jessica@thecuttingveg.com, and let her know:
          • What shift you'd like to apply for
          • Dates you'd be interested in committing to
          • And to book a trial shift.
  • If, after your trial shift, both you and the Farm team feels it's a good fit, we will firm up the plan, including dates of the commitment.
  • No resumes necessary
Whether you decide to be a Casual or Core Volunteer, we very much look forward to farming with you soon! Keep Livin' on the Veg!
