Volunteer Educator

Our Education Programs occur on and off the farm to give pre-K through 8th grade students a better understanding of where their food comes from, why fruits and vegetables are good for our bodies, and opportunities to taste and cook with produce. We are seeking volunteers with an interest in nutrition, agriculture, and education to assist and lead activities such as planting, farm tours, and vegetable tastings with students

How you help Community Harvest Project is a non-profit farm that engages volunteers to grow fresh fruits and vegetables to provide to those experiencing hunger. We strive to provide a positive experience for the over 11,000 volunteers that work with us.
About us Community Harvest Project is a non-profit farm that engages volunteers to grow fresh fruits and vegetables to provide to those experiencing hunger. Members of our community who experience hunger are also more likely to have limited access to healthy foods. Limited access to healthy foods leads to poor health effects such as unhealthy diet, higher levels of obesity, and higher instances of diet-related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. We farm and donate fruits and vegetables so everyone has the healthy option.
