About Being A Volunteer

As we work to build the vision of our farm in the city, we are indebted to our volunteers who come from all walks of life, giving their time, energy, and care. We strive to offer educational volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

Community Farm Days

Our Farm Team invites you to join us for one or more of our upcoming Community Farm Daysa new series intended to immerse community members in meaningful work in partnership with our farmers. Come out for a day of friendly collaboration on the Farm! You’ll work side-by-side with our farmers, learn our best practices by putting them into action, and directly support your community farm. Check our events calendar for upcoming Community Farm Days!

If you want to support our food sovereignty efforts, please consider establishing a regular volunteer schedule! Volunteers are needed through the main growing season to help with produce harvesting, processing, packing, and/or distribution to our thirteen community partners across Saratoga County, including food pantries, community centers, schools, and senior centers.

If you're interested in joining us on a more regular basis please contact our Food Sovereignty Coordinator, Daniel, at daniel.williams@pitneymeadows.org.

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities

As stewards of this legendary landscape, we are honored to partner with neighbors and stakeholders who offer their time and talents in support of our mission. We welcome inquiries from volunteer groups. Outdoor volunteer opportunities are available between April and October. Possible activities include planting, weeding, harvesting, light carpentry, and cleaning. Volunteers work closely with our staff, and all necessary equipment and instruction is provided. Activities can be tailored to accommodate the size of your group and participants’ particular skills or fitness levels. All volunteer groups must be scheduled in advance. Date and project availability varies throughout the year. All volunteers must sign a waiver before participating. Please contact contact@pitneymeadows.org to discuss your corporate volunteer opportunity.

Professional Infrastructure Opportunities

Occasionally we seek the assistance of local builders, contractors, engineers and others for infrastructure projects. You can also help out by giving a gift!
