Volunteer Opportunities at Gibbs Farm

Saturday, April 21st – Volunteer Day!

Even though the warm weather is taking its time, field trip season is fast approaching and we need help doing some outdoor spring clean-up! Projects include garden prep, trash pickup and minor landscaping. This is a great time to learn about additional volunteer opportunities at Gibbs Farm, plus volunteers will receive a complimentary admission for our opening weekend. Projects are suitable for participants 11 and up. This is a fun way for students to give back to their community and earn service hours. Groups are also welcome. Sign up by emailing clare@rchs.com.

We will have all the materials and instructions needed for the projects as well as snacks! Participants should wear sturdy shoes and clothes that can get a little dirty. Bring work gloves if you like.

Can’t make it on the 21st? We have a second Volunteer Day on May 12th!

Get involved at Gibbs Farm! We depend on volunteers to keep the site running and looking good, and to assist staff.
