Covid-19; Adjusting our plan to continue to support community

Volunteer Groups and Drop In Volunteers cancelled through June 13th

 

We have had to adjust our plan to ensure that we can continue to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to those experiencing hunger in the wake of this crisis. In order to have our crops planted on time for proper production we will utilize a water wheel transplanter as an alternative to our large volunteer operation. This is a solution to a temporary challenge, we hope to get back to our normal operations and hosting large groups as soon as the situation allows.  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 as our community recovers. 

General Guidelines

During normal times we welcome groups of all ages and sizes (from 5 up to 100) at our North Grafton location, and groups (up to 30) of high school age and up at our Harvard location. Due to COVID19 social distancing guidelines, we are not hosting any large groups until after June 13th, 2020. We will also not be scheduling volunteer visits for the remainder of the season until after June 13th, 2020.

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.
