Volunteers help grow our local food community
and make our work possible!
Volunteer With Us
Farmshed is an organization run on volunteers! In order to pull off our annual events and programs, we look to the Central Wisconsin community for their assistance. Our volunteer opportunities range from working in our kitchen, greenhouse, grounds, and our off-site events.

FRONT DESK WORK:
Help Farmshed staff increase our work capacity by working our front desk. Jobs include: engaging with the public, organization of Farmshed, handing out orders, and answering phones. Volunteers are welcome to bring books, school materials, etc. for slower periods of the day. Fill out this google form if interested.
Farmshed is activating our back garden space and greenhouse to increase produce yield, better supply our food programs and support our community by creating a robust food system. To achieve this, we need individuals to help us clear, clean and preform general garden labor in order to reach this goal.

Lending a Hand During COVID-19
Volunteering with Farmshed looks a little different right now, but you can still get involved.
All volunteers will have their temperatures taken and will be required to fill out a waiver verifying their health.
Per CDC guidelines, all volunteers with a temperature above 100.4F will be sent home.
If you are sick, or in contact with someone who’s sick, stay home. Individuals who arrive on site with symptoms will be asked to go home.
Masks are required and must be worn at all times.
Frozen Assets volunteers will be given a face shield and gloves for their shift as well.
