What Stewards Do
Farm Stewards are Common Roots BiHi core volunteers that support our mission to promote healthy lifestyles and landscapes through hands-on education about the growing and eating healthy food.
Caring for the farm on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons throughout the season, Farm Stewards are responsible for tending the gardens as needed, answering questions for plotters and the community, and attending to the edges of the farm, ensuring things are tidy and taken care of when staff cannot be present.
Optional Training Opportunities:
Farm Stewards are welcome to attend any Common Roots Urban Farm workshop free of charge.
Become a Steward
We accept applications for Farm Stewards in February and March each year. Applications are submitted through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your application is received we will be in touch to arrange a time to meet.
Required training will be offered in late March and early April to ensure all volunteers learn about our organization and operation of the farm, basic farm skills and an understanding of team dynamics.
Starting May 1, Farm Stewards take one shift a week caring for the farm. The season ends with our Harvest Hootenanny & Pumpkin Smash, the weekend after Hallowe’en.
