Our volunteer program brings members of the community to the farm every week, under a shared mission to support our staff and our mission.

From the field to the barn, this land provides many opportunities to lend a hand. There are ways to dig in all over our 28-acre Regenerative Organic Farm and ecological nonprofit in San Juan Capistrano.

We invite you to get involved with one of our dedicated teams such as Orchard Ohana, Chicken Tenders, and Farm Share or pick up a few shifts helping pack our pantry add-ons, saving seeds, or making bouquets, or come seasonally to help with festivals and community dinners.
