Projects are seasonal and vary from week to week, and could include weeding, mulching, trellising, path or fence maintenance, moving soil, or working with compost. Visit the Battery Urban Farm Community Programs page for exact dates and more information.

Saturday Open Volunteer Hours are for all ages, however volunteers under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.  Any volunteers under 18 must bring a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. 

All volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes and weather-appropriate clothing (boots if it has rained recently, layers in cool weather, a hat and sunscreen in the summer are strongly recommended). Please also bring a water bottle.

We will work in most weather, including light rain. The following conditions will constitute cause for automatic cancellation of volunteer hours: heavy-driving rain, flooding, thunder and lightning storms, and temperatures upwards of 93 degrees.
