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. 

Covid-19; Continuing to adjust our plan to support our community.

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 50 or less from May 3 to July 3, from July 5 to October 15 we will host groups of 75 or less (Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to Non). We project that the Harvard location will be open for group volunteering from August 23 to October 15 (stay tuned for an announcement of when scheduling for Harvard opens.) Due to COVID-19 social distancing protocols, all large groups will be broken up into smaller groups of <15 people for field work. Individuals can sign up to volunteer in Grafton using the Sign Up Genius link posted on Facebook each Friday for shifts the following week through the end of September.

We are a working farm and all our volunteer activities take place outside. To get the full experience wear something you don’t mind getting dirty. Dress in closed-toe shoes, a hat, and appropriate additions to fit the season (sunscreen, layers, rain gear).

Schedule a Volunteer Group

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

Individual Volunteers

Individuals can sign up to volunteer in Grafton using the Sign Up Genius link posted on Facebook each Friday for shifts the following week (Monday-Saturday, 9am-12pm) through the end of September. At this time we are NOT scheduling individual volunteers in Harvard. If you are checking after Friday scroll down to find the most recent volunteer sign up post. A Facebook account is not required to sign up – anyone can access the page to get the most recent volunteer sign up link. We are not allowing “drop in” volunteers as hosting open volunteer hours does not allow us to limit the number of people on the property at one time.

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.
