We have many different options for you to get involved at Paddington’s Farm! You can choose from remote opportunities to rolling up your sleeves and digging in at the farm itself. Please explore our available opportunities below, and if you think you have another skill or idea that we could use, please reach out to us! We are always looking for enthusiastic, dedicated members to join our team. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
In addition to the opportunities described below, we are happy to host school groups or “volunteer days” for schools or companies. If this is you, please reach out to us and we will coordinate with you based on the ongoing needs of the farm.
As a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, we can provide community service hours for many local middle school and high school graduation requirements.
WHY VOLUNTEER WITH PADDINGTON’S FARM?
Our volunteers are the heart of the farm and we depend on them to stay running. At Paddington’s Farm, you have the opportunity to give however much time you have, and be confident that you are directly making a real difference. Every animal at the farm depends on us and our volunteers for their daily care and wellbeing.
Our volunteers get a lot back from their contributions. In addition to the feeling of satisfaction from knowing that you are giving to your community, you can learn about animals, gardening, construction, website maintenance, or managing a non-profit. You truly do get back what you put in. We couldn’t do this without you!
