Volunteer at the West Broad Farmers Market and Garden
The West Broad Farmers Market hosts monthly volunteer opportunities during each in-person farmers market. We are seeking volunteers to assist at the West Broad Farmers Market’s October in-person event, the Fall Festival! We will have morning and afternoon shifts available on Saturday, October 22, 2022. This is a great opportunity for ACC students, UGA students, or Community members looking to give back to a local organization and learn more about the farmers market!
Volunteer at Williams Farm
We are looking for members of the community who would like to come and lend a helping hand at our Williams Farm! Volunteers will help with farm tasks such as planting, weeding, harvesting, and washing, and packing freshly harvested veggies as well as assisting our Farm Incubators as needed. This is a great opportunity to learn about farming, give back to your community, or just get out and enjoy the sunshine!
Invasive Species Plant Removal Work Days at Heritage Park
The Oconee County Parks and Recreation Department and the Keep Oconee County Beautiful Commission, in partnership with Athens Land Trust and Kel-Mac Saddle Club, will host Invasive Species Plant Removal Work Days at Heritage Park this fall and winter. Volunteers and staff will work to remove Autumn Olive, a plant that is crowding out native species and causing ecological harm to the local forest and its inhabitants. No training or experience is necessary to participate in this work day. Volunteers will be trained in identification and removal of invasive plant species, and tools will be provided.
