Assist a local elderly person with grocery shopping, trips around town, light household tasks, and/or simply socialization.
Volunteer naturalists will be responsible for leading fieldtrip groups of preK-3rd grade students around the farm, discovering how plants grow using sensory and inquiry-based education techniques; and assisting with farm upkeep when students aren’t around. Training provided and fresh food is a perk!
Volunteer at Harvest Festival! Harvest Festival is a free community event that celebrates the fall season at beautiful Carnation Farms on Oct. 14-15 & 21-22. Please join us! Family-friendly events like Pumpkin Bowling, Petting Zoo Attendant and more! Ages 16+ please.
Oxbow will host thousands of kids in the spring, summer and fall for our seasonal Farm Adventures. Primarily pre-school and early elementary-aged students visit the farm for 75 or 90-minute hands-on farm tours facilitated by farmer and volunteer instructors. Kids learn about the six plant parts, soil, compost, worms, and ways to connect to nature.
Volunteer naturalists will be responsible for leading tours with up to 14 kids (and their chaperones) around our two-acre Kids’ Farm. When no tours are scheduled, volunteers will assist the OxEd team in a variety of farming tasks around the Kids’ Farm. Only a moderate understanding of food and farms is necessary. There will be a lot of opportunity for learning from our staff.
Additional Opportunity for Volunteer Naturalists
Participate in professional development opportunities, community partnership building, and monthly EE program delivery for our EPA grant-funded Partnering for the Future Project during the 2017-2018 school year.
