Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Valley Verde! 
We hope you enjoy this experience learning more about food around the world and creating spaces where people have access to fresh, affordable, organic, and culturally relevant food. 

Weekly volunteer workdays are Fridays from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Homeland Nursery.
Our site is outdoors, so please wear closed-toed shoes and bring a hat, sunscreen, and water for yourself as needed.
 

**Allergen Alert** 
We have a beehive on site, so please take caution and bring any relevant medications.

We want to make our volunteer opportunities as accessible as possible. The nursery is somewhat rough terrain, so if volunteering on site is not possible for you, you can volunteer remotely. Use this form to let us know your access needs and we will do our best to meet them.
