Do you enjoy planting seeds in the spring and nurturing them for transplanting into the garden? Do you appreciate being outside while having some chickens and a few other farm animals around? If so, then join a local non-profit that supports adults with disabilities. Our organic farm has been operating for about 7 years providing supplemental vegetables and herbs for the folks we serve.

- Be at least 18 years old
- Be able to pass a background check
