The 2021 farm season is now officially open for schedule requests, we project that we will open for volunteers on May 3rd at the Grafton location. Scheduling for the Harvard location will be opened later in our season.

Please sign up for our email newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates. Any donations made during this time will ensure that we are able to continue to provide healthy hunger relief. 

General Guidelines

At our Grafton location we host groups of up to 100 through October 15 on Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to Noon. We project that we will announce the opening for our Harvard location during the last week of June (stay tuned for that announcement). We ask that unvaccinated volunteers wear an appropriate face covering when unable to maintain social distance or when entering our facilities. All ages are welcome, volunteers under the age of 16.5 must be accompanied by an adult.

We are a working farm and all volunteer activities take place outside. To get the full experience wear something that you don’t mind getting dirty. Dress in closed-toed shoes, a hat, and seasonally appropriate items (layers, rain gear, sunscreen and always carry a refillable water bottle).

Scheduling requests are now open for our 2021 season, we are currently scheduling for the Grafton location only.

Become a Team Leader

Team Leading is an extremely rewarding hands-on experience that involves guiding diverse groups of volunteers in completing various farm activities.  Volunteer Team Leaders are the backbone of Community Harvest Project’s success story.  Our Team Leaders work with CHP Field Staff and Interns to represent the organization and ensure a positive experience for the over 7,500 volunteers that work with us.

What does team leading involve?

A great Volunteer Team Leader is interested in helping to provide access to fresh produce for the hunger relief network in Worcester County. They have a friendly and engaging personality, and the desire to lead small groups of 6 to 30 volunteers in hands-on farm activities. Assisting and leading diverse groups of volunteers from pre-K to senior citizens in farm activities in various types of weather sounds like an exciting challenge. They also want to join a group of Volunteer Team Leaders engaged in presenting a world class volunteer experience. Ready to get involved? Email volunteer@community-harvest.org.
