Gibbs Road Farm Volunteer Opportunities
Work the Farm Days: On the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month, we host “Work the Farm” volunteer days at our Gibbs Road Farm from 9am to noon. Individuals and groups of all experience levels are welcome! Come on out and get your hands dirty while you learn the fundamentals of urban farming.
Both individuals and groups can check availability for dates and sign up online with our Sign Up Genius form. If you have questions, please contact Ami Freeberg at ami[at]cultivatekc.org or 913.944.5639.
Volunteer Leadership Program: We offer a unique volunteer opportunity for individuals interested in being a leader, gaining a deeper understanding of farming in the city and developing more growing skills. Qualified individuals will work and learn side-by-side with our Gibbs Road Farm's field crew.

Minimum three month commitment
Ability to work outside, sometimes under extreme conditions, for extended periods of time

Volunteers who fulfill their minimum three-month commitment will have an opportunity to work with our staff as a Volunteer Leader at Saturday Work the Farm days and will receive special recognition from our staff and crew.
